Today's reader question comes from Mitzy. She really made me think with this one.
Who would you most like to interview and what would be the first question you would ask them?
In light of recent political events, I'm tempted to say the Obamas, but they're all over the media right now and I can't think of anything to ask them that they haven't already been asked. Then there's the current president, who I'd like to ask a dozen or so questions, none of which I would expect to get an honest answer to.
There are dozens of writers whose brains I'd like to pick. And plenty of historical figures (JFK, MLK, Rosa Parks, Ghandi) that I'd like to have dinner with. But I think the one person I'd really like to interview is someone much less famous, someone I only know by name and a grainy black and white photograph. I'd interview my grandfather and I'd ask him what the best moment of his life was. Then I'd ask him to start at the beginning and tell me everything else.
Who would you like to interview and what's the first question you'd ask?
If you've got a burning question for me but haven't had a chance to ask it, you can go to the original post and leave your question in a comment. I'll keep answering a question or two a day until they're all answered.
