That’s not the question

Did Ranan Lachman ask himself a question? It’s not clear from this sentence on the Yahoo! front page:

fp quest

Correctly punctuated, the sentence gets a little awkward:

Why not find a way to rent pricey Lego sets for his son and return them when he was done? Ranan Lachman asked.

A better solution is to rewrite the sentence:

Ranan Lachman wondered if he could find a way to rent pricey Lego sets for his son and return them when he was done.

Ranan Lachman asked: Why not find a way to rent pricey Lego sets for his son and return them when he was done?
