"Will You Like This Site?" I Asked Rhetorically

Dr. Gradgrind answers rhetorical questions. (Or, his alter ego, Dr. Brians of WSU, does.) See here.

This one is for my friend, Aitch Em in the Ewe Kay, who I know will get a kick out of this! Enjoy HM.

Yea, I also love rhetorical questions! They send my head spinning - I never really know whether to attempt answering them, hence, I am sometimes referred to as "The girl who missed the point." I just have one question for you, J: "Do you know the way to San Jose?"-Aitch

I am SO in the know, that I actually know who that is!

HM-UK: I think I'm that same girl. I often miss the point and begin waxing eloquent on whatever has been posed without realizing, until it's too late, that the question was rhetorical.

In the case of your question, the answer depends on where you are in relation to San Jose and by what means you might arrive there. Also, does the song--which you so obviously reference--refer to San Jose, California or San Jose, Mexico, or some other San Jose? Who knows?...

That said, you can get to San Jose any way you like!

GF: You know who Dr. Gradgrind is or you know who Dr. Brians is? (And that's not a rhetorical question, by the way.)
