Every once in a while I find myself asking questions to which I don't know the answers. For instance,
*To whom do we owe the National Debt?
*Who is the "we" that owes it? All the American people? The American government?
*Can whoever it is to whom we owe it foreclose on whomever it is that owes it?
[*Should that be "whoever it is that owes it" in that last question?]
*What would a foreclosure on the National Debt look like?
*Could we all wake up tomorrow and discover that our entire country is now owned and ruled directly by China, which has foreclosed on the National Debt?
These are not smart alecky questions, to which I already know the answer. (Well, okay, so maybe the last one is a smart alecky question to which I already know the answer. The answer is "no."...Right?)
But actually, for all the others, I really don't know the answers. But I bet my blog colleagues and readers do.
