And Now, Another Exciting Installment Of The Four Questions

Here's a little bit of background on the Four Questions:

When I first started the original Daily Dave, the preternaturally grumpy Doug Stanley (who no longer works for the Tribune and is no longer grumpy, but I am in no way insinuating that those two things are related) referred me to some site in which some woman in New York answered the same four questions each day. I liked the idea, so I ripped it off imitated it -- you know, as a tribute. As the woman's fourth question always dealt with coffee, and I don't drink coffee every day, I decided I would change my last question every day.

I have always written the answers in the third person. I have no explanation for this. If you don't like it, go start your own blog and write you own regular daily question-and-answer feature.

The original Daily Dave no longer exists. (It died, regrettably, after scarfing down and entire bag of Pop Rocks and then guzzling a can of Coke. How sad.) However, the Four Questions live on. Viva la logorrhea!

Now on to the questions:

Q. What is Dave wearing?
A. Dave is wearing a blue dress shirt, tan khakis, a black tie and a blue sports jacket. He is dressed for teevee. He doesn't ordinarily record a Business Report segment on Tuesdays, but coworker Shannon Behnken is under the weather today.

Q. How does Dave feel today?
A. Dave is feeling kind of contemplative today.

Q. What are the factors affecting Dave's mood today?
A. Dave isn't quite sure. He just feels reflective and pensive, and wishes he had time to sit somewhere, under a tree near a river, to read Very Important Books and listen to Beethoven. However, he suspects that if he were given the time, he'd squander it watching teevee.

Q. Does Dave have any thoughts about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech at Columbia University yesterday?
A. Dave is intrigued by Ahmadinejad's claim that "In Iran, we don't have homosexuals, like in your country." Dave wonders how Iran has made this happen, as the source of homosexuals is, in fact, hetersexual parents. The only surefire way to prevent new gay men and lesbians from entering the world is to stop all straight men and women from breeding. What is going on in Iran?
