Good Question Bonus: Is There A Recall Option For Congress?

Mary wrote to us this week out of frustration. In fact, many of you were quite angry in your Good Question submissions about the government shutdown. On Tuesday, we answered the GQ about Congressional members’ salaries. I thought we’d use this space to answer Mary’s question: Is there a recall option for Congress?

Good Question Bonus: Email(s), Bodies Of Water, Deer Crossings & Men’s Coats

Thanks to everyone who sent in Good Question suggestions this week! Please keep them coming! In the meantime, I wanted to answer a few that didn’t make air. Rosy has a question I’ve never thought about before: Why do people put an “s” on the end of email, as in emails? We don’t say we are going to pick up our snail mails from the post office. Good point, Rosy. I looked up the definition of email in the dictionary and found three definitions – two for nouns and one for a verb.

Good Question Bonus: Why Are Green Screens Green? (And Other Inquiries)

Hello GQers: Every day, I get dozens of Good Questions from all of you. Most come via email, but others are sent through phone calls straight to me, the assignment desk or the WCCO-TV front desk. My favorite are often the hand-written letters. The Good Question team goes through every email, but, as you all well know, there are only five days in the week. That means there are plenty of Good Questions that we just don’t get the chance to answer on TV. So, I thought I’d start a little GQ Bonus.
