Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Don't be too embarrassing.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. All the other people who have found themselves wishing to be at Cafe Schwarzenberg on Thursday afternoon in November.

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

A. I'd love to be able to draw or play guitar or dance. All three at the same time: that's the talent for me.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I try as hard as I can to understand why people do what they do. I don't believe I exactly deserve a medal for that or anything, though.

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

A. I'm not sure if we're talking fictional or real here, but I'll go for an obvious one: Abraham Lincoln. I'd say, "Mr. President, it's an honor." Then, I'd invite him over for cake, or pie, or whatever we had, whatever he wanted. The larder is open to the 16th president.
