Eleven percent (results not final nor chewable) do not think that "questions are raisable" vis a vis how officials' behavior in New Orleans might play out during a major terrorist attack. Those languid questions should just stay put, thank you very much. Questions are not raising, they are resting comfortably. Questions should be taking a well-deserved nap. As a matter of fact, after resting up, those questions should lounge in the pool for a time, or like Monty Python get on their stomach's and climb the lateral face of an urban sidewalk.

Other things questions might do, other than be raised: they could be taken to an amusement park, treated to an afternoon at the zoo or be a featured speaker at an Anabaptist Kazoo festival. Questions might enjoy playing marbles, gin rummy or pachinko. No poker, for how to raise the pot when the potter shall not be raised?

We could all get in the van and go to the hills, find a flat spot and do some star-gazing, questions brought along but no questions asked. What is rather startling is that those who do not think questions should be raised answered a question that had been raised. O, irony! O, silly persons!
