    Just checking a sentence

    Um yeah, just checking to make sure this sentance is correct...

    "I don't mean to intrude on the conversation but may I inquire as to the point of this arguement?"

    I am not quite certain weather "may I inquire as to the point" is correct or not.

    That is a polite question. A very polite question.
