Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Integrity, energy, imagination.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Moriarty has no peer, at least in my opinion.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. My personal heroes are Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., John Steinbeck and Admiral James Stockdale. I realize I don't have Holmes's intellect, Steinbeck's compassionate writing excellence, or Stockdale's personal courage. But I can at least do my best to emulate them.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. My secret dream would be to play in a rock band, but I have absolutely no musical talent. I can't even hum on key.
