Replying to LO21769 --

When Bud Maxfield talked about listening for different answers that are
also "true" I was reminded of two questions I like to ask groups:

1. What is the capital of Ohio?
2. If you put $1000 in a bank at 5% simple interest for one year, what do
you get?

Here are a couple of "true" answers:

1. The big letter at the beginning.

2. A toaster.

As Bud suggests, search for "the one right answer" and you'll miss answers
like these! ;-)
