Just One Question

If you could go back and time and ask anybody just one question that they would have to answer truthfully - who would it be and what would you ask them?

My question - was the Emancipation Proclimation something you actually believed in or was it a political move done during war time to rattle your enemy

Why did you keep a communist as your Yalta advisor?

If I might be so bold as to add a second person

I'd like to go back and ask Grady Little why he was leaving Pedro Martinez in the game, then club him over the head and bring in Alan Embree and save Red Sox nation the agony of Aaroon F-ing Boone

You still would have lost. It's the Red Sox.

After noticing that my status here is ASSET, I would just like to ask NousDefionsDoc one question: "Who is my handler?"

It, as with all things in our world, is a Team effort.

Since I asked, I'll answer. While I have a long list of "What the hell were you thinking?", I'll skip that one.

I think Allen Dulles. "Who do you think was involved in the assassination of JFK?"

Allen Dulles because I think he would know, he was DCI prior and on the investigation team. I would really like to know once and for all sho all was involved in the assassination.

True

But I would have gotten to club Grady


NDD that's a great question and was right up there on my list as well

Perhaps we could also ask Oswald as well what he knew or didn't know

That would be my choice. Who REALLY was L. H. Oswald?

I would go back and ask OBL why the fuck he turned to the dark side.


Was that too harsh??

Too bad.

Then I would put a bullet right between his eyes.

That's the ticket.
