The Friday Five (2-20-04)!

Friday, February 20th, 2004

One thing I took away from my bizarre and mostly useless college education was that when interviewing someone you should try to avoid yes or no (or the like) type questions. Nothing is so boring as listening to an interview where the host asks a long or intricate question and then leaves the guest a gaping option to fill in an answer of “Yes” or “12” or “blue”. Whatever. We were taught to lead your guests and ask them open ended sentences because no one really wants to listen to the host and that’s mostly what you get with bad questions.

Sadly, today’s Friday Five falls into the semi frequent category of badly phrased questions. My apologies, I tried to do with it what I could, but even I, Queen Of Ramble, could not make them very interesting (or informative). I’ll make it up to y’all later.
