A. On a beach watching waves turn over into foam, listening to them break on the shore
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. I would have to say Jesus Christ, just because so much in history depends upon him, good and bad, and I would like to show him what became of this religion called after him and ask him what he thinks. My guess is he would say, in the words of Mr. Prufrock, "That is not what I meant at all. That is not it at all."
