Question of the Day

At the suggestion of The Old Professor:

What historical figure would you most like to meet?

For me there are a lot. In fact, I’d like to have my own version of that old PBS show with Steve Allen called Meeting of Minds where he had historical figures of all different eras — Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, Cleopatra, Marie Antoinette, Florence Nightingale, Thomas Paine, Francis Bacon, Thomas Jefferson, Voltaire and Charles Darwin — sitting around a table and talking. Of course, I’d include people like Groucho Marx, FDR, William Shakespeare, and W.C. Fields — as long as he paid for his own drinks.
