If you have to ask why, you'll never find out
Morning Edition's Renee Montagne interviewed National Geographic journalist Tim Neville and while talking about the difficulty in winter climbing, asked (I paraphrase): "Why would they (missing climbers) want to do this?" I was dumbfounded. Seriously? Tim responded more politely than I would have, talking about the missing climbers' mountain past experiences and skills.
My response: "Renee, if you have to ask why, you'll never find out."
So which kind of person are you? Do you ask why, or do you ask when.
