PLAYLIST FOR “MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO THE RHETORICAL QUESTION” (11.22.14)

22 Nov

Is there really a difference between asking a rhetorical question and talking to yourself? That’s one of the few rhetorical questions I didn’t pose this week. But aren’t the songs and the singers below stellar enough? (That’s a rhetorical question.)
