My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Negative thinkers and people who don't know how to merge on the freeway.
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. Aragorn, from the Lord of the Rings Triology. But only if he came in the form of Viggo Mortensen. I would probably say, "Holy crap, you're hot."
Kidding aside, I would love to meet Atticus Finch. I'd like to hear his impressions of the world, and how we have ended up where we are as a society. And then I would just soak up his gentle, quiet wisdom.
