    Socrates, Andrea Dworkin, Harvey Milk, Virginia Wolf, and Rothko. That would be a fun cocktail party to see them interact as well as discuss their take on contemporary issues.

    Akbar - The most visionary integrationist of all time. I would love to hear his prescriptions for the problems we face amongst religions.

    Tsun Tsu - I would love to know his views on the economics of modern warfare.

    Howard Hughes - It would be great to have dinner and discuss what really happened after the Glomar Explorer incident.

    Orson Welles - I wouldn't care what we talked about.

    Jean Genet - I wouldn't care what we talked about.

    Alexander - I would like to have his views on the life of the traveler.

    Hannibal - I would love to see the slides from his adventures.

    Shakespeare - Could we just talk about the Tempest. What did you think of "Prospero's Books"?

    TE Lawrence - Does it bother you that your vision of what might happen in the Arabian peninsula was so prescient and so ignored? What should we do now?

    Queen Victoria - How does one bear the loss of love?

    Mr. & Mrs. Strauss - From where did you summon such courage as the Titanic sank beneath you?

    Bugsy Siegal - What did you really want Las Vegas to be?

    Robert Moses - What did you really want New York to be?

    Nikola Tesla - Do you feel vindicated?

    Copernicus - Can you believe the Catholic Church is still banging on about this crap?

    Neil Armstrong - Tell me everything, from the first second till the last.

    Guys:
    My dad - What happened to make you the way you were? Did you love me?
    Jesus - I would definitely ask him about his views on gay men and women!
    Charles Dickens - I’d talk to him about a horrible childhood and resilience.
    Leonardo da Vinci - I would like to know his personality. I want to make him laugh…I don’t know why.
    Vincent van Gogh - I would like to let him know what a beautiful person he is, and assure him that his work would inspire millions. I would bear hug him.
    Francesco Bernardone of Assisi - I would ask him about his conversion, and the stigmata wounds on his hands and feet. Are they self inflicted?
    James Dean - Dinner, then sex.
    Frank Lloyd Wright - I would just listen to him yammer on.
    I would love to ask Sigmund Freud about his sex life, and watch how he would react! HA!

    Gals:
    Queen Elizabeth I - Dinner wouldn’t be enough time for all the questions I’d like to ask. How did she feel about her father?
    Princess Diana - I always liked her. I’d love to make her laugh.
    Katherine Hepburn - I’d ask her about her Hollywood friends.

    Any and ALL of these would be FASCINATING........just one item...Neil Armstrong,,,the 1st man on the moon...is still VERY MUCH ALIVE! He lives on his farm in Lebanon, OH....a distant suburb of Cincinnati....still he'd be an AWESOME interview.....icon_cool.gif

    Gandhi - I'd ask how he had the strength to do what he did... and what can we do about the world today?

    Mother Theresa - Simply would be an honor to be in the presence of a woman who spent her whole life helping others

    Princess Diana- what was it like being so followed? What would she be doing now?

    Sigmund Freud - after all.... he did inspire the rest of psychology as we know it.

    Melanie Klein - another prolific psychologist

    Abraham Lincoln

    Vincent Van Gogh (he is my favorite artist ever).... I'd also like to get a better idea of what was wrong with him, what his symptoms were...and if I could have helped him with modern medicine and therapy :-(

    Yassir Arafat - what were his true goals? Did he ever think there would be peace? What were his experiences and his fears?

    Amelia Earhart- What happened?? And what was your journey like overall?

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt/if he had lived to a ripe old age, how many times being President is enough?

    Teddy Roosevelt/if he could see how things have turned out,would he still lead America down the hard imperial path?

    Henry Clay/would he have authored the compromise of 1850 if he could see the result?

    I think all the famous dead people might get bored talking about the one thing they're famous for lol

    But I'd pick:

    James Dean: Afternoon Drinks
    Quentin Crisp: I don't know why, he seemed lonely to me
    Andy Warhol: For Conversation
    Princess Diana: For Conversation
    Dad: To tie loose ends up and advice

    My father's father, Seymour, because I have so many questions about my dad.

    And my mother's father, because I think of him often and know he would have something insightful to say about his point in my life.

    OK--here are my 3 at this moment in my life.

    1) My grandma--she was a very loving and caring woman. She had a hard life, but she was an incredibly strong woman! I just want to say thanks to her and tell her that I love her!

    2) Rock Hudson---if he had to do it all over again, would he live his life in the closet?

    3) Elvis Presley---I would have to invite my sister over to cook and she could meet him because she loved him!! icon_wink.gif

    My Dad's parents were gone long before I was born so I never knew them. My Mom's dad was someone I was never close with, so I never knew much about him or from him.

    Vincent Price. I bet he could tell a thousand and one stories about Golden Age Hollywood, William Castle, Roger Corman, and his passion for art.

    Alice B. Toklas and Gertrude Stein

    Now, here are two American women from the early part of the 20th century who moved to Europe separately, they met in Paris and became lovers, to seek, yes, freedom from oppression. They hosted many writers and other intelligentsia so would have some excellent stories to tell. Since I myself moved to Europe for a similar reason, I would like to listen to their take on that subject and many others.

    Carl Sagan. I think he had a beautiful mind, strong principles and ethics, and remains one of my favourite writers.
