It’s Ask Bernstein Anything Day!

Our contributing editor is taking your questions about local and state politics.

In every generation, Boris Pasternak said, there has to be some fool who will speak the truth as he sees it. Well, I think in this Internet age, we’ve learned that there are an awful lot of those fools out there, but I’ll play the fool today, proudly. It’s time for another Ask Me Anything Day!

Pose your questions as comments to this post, or email them to me at

I will do my best to answer in posts throughout the day. I might always have truth, but I can usually come up with speculation, guesswork, rumor, or shot in the dark.

I’m sure Boris would be proud.
