Latest in my occasional series of headline questions to which the answer is No.

Today's headline, #95, is a question that is asked on The Wardman Wire. I have several people following me on Twitter. I can only say to them that they are setting themselves up for disappointment, as I have no idea how to use it or what it is for.
