• About the investigation into what caused two trains to collide on the Blue Line yesterday? —John Dunlevy
• About the failure of economist Jeffrey Sachs, author of the best-selling book The War on Poverty, to arrest poverty in sub-Saharan Africa? (Just another verse in the long ballad of unintended consequences.) —Kate Schmidt
