JAMES CARROLL offers yet another list of lame questions in place of a column. Why is he doing this? How long will he keep this up? Did the Globe get a bunch of question marks wholesale, and assign Carroll to use them up? Are they rationing periods and exclamation points in Boston? Did the Army requisition them all for the war effort? Is that why Carroll seems so angry? Are the Globe's editors embarrassed by Carroll's work? If not, why in God's name aren't they? Do any readers pay attention? Does he actually think that he's saying something important? Or is it just easier to keep posing questions without answering them, so that you're never responsible for stating a clear position? Who knows? Who cares?

UPDATE: Hey, this got picked up over at SillyGlobe! I have arrived.
