Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. There’s a huge, noisy diner near my house that my whole family loves. Every time we go there I order the same meal: a big green salad and a thick, spicy seafood soup full of mussels, clams, shrimp, scallops and other chewy creatures I don’t want to think too hard about. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s my favorite meal—especially when I’m also able to sneak a few sips of my kids’ vanilla milkshakes.
