Post your five current events questions as comments to this post. This will give me one-stop shopping to see, organize and think about your questions. Focus on “how?” and “why?” questions. These questions can come from anywhere in the newspaper — any section — but focus on the one day (Thursday). Publish your questions in the form of a comment to this post.
Some good sample questions:
- Mitt Romney just won the New Hampshire primary. Why are Iowa and New Hampshire — two fairly small states in terms of population — the first two primaries? Why not, say, California and Texas?
- In 2012, how is that the government still can regulate television? Doesn’t the First Amendment immune broadcasters from government censorship?
- Why does Iran think that a U.S. citizen, Amir Mirzaei Hekmati, is a spy? (Iran has sentenced Hekmati to death.)
Use either tomorrow’s print or online versions of the New York Times.
Deadline: 8 p.m. Thursday, January 12.
