Q & A

Is it a good idea to pay poor high school students as an incentive to stay in school?

It's a very good idea as long as it isn't tax payer dollars that are being used to pay for this incentive.

My poor high school students would be motivated to try harder to learn if they knew that a pot of money was at the end of the road.

Money talks.

Poor students can hear this talk loud and clear.

They might not drop out if they’re getting paid.

What do you think of when you see Iraq's Nuri al-Maliki holding hands with Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

Isn't this just a custom?

What did we think when Cheney and Bush held hands with those Sheiks?

Isn't it better that Mr. al-Maliki and Mr. Ahmadinejad are holding hands than throwing bombs at each other?

I guess it's different strokes for different folks.

Is the 2008 presidential campaign happening too fast?

Not if starting so early allows the voting public to get a better idea about the candidates.

It isn't a bad thing for citizens to see the clean and dirty laundry early on.

It isn't a bad thing to hear candidates' ideas and positions way ahead of time.

Then in the last moments of the campaigning we can better judge who the best qualified candidates are.
