Questions Unasked

[posted by Callimachus]

"But even now it's difficult. Even in the six years from 1997 in which I was doing my research, I'd often hold back from asking questions. I'd play back the tapes and know that I ought to have asked a certain question, but sometimes I just couldn't: it would have been too cruel. I'd have a kind of a block."
