Name three people, living or dead, you would like to invite for dinner? Why? "Tom Petty. Growing up I was always an obsessed Tom Petty fan. As an adult, I started going to concerts of influential musicians that were on a list of musicians I had to see before they died. One summer I had the opportunity to go see Tom Petty live in Milwaukee, but decided against it and told myself, "I'll go next time he's in Minnesota." Unfortunately later that year Tom Petty passed away and I lost my chance to ever see this great musician live in concert. Barack Obama. As a former social studies teacher I am always enthralled great figures from our history, but what people don't realize is that history happens every day. History is kind to some, not so kind to others. I would really like to pick Barack Obama's brain about this concept, how he feels history will treat him, as well as just have a great chat in general. Dave Chappelle. The comedic genius that this man has brought, as well as the social intelligence he brings to the table has always blown my mind. The dinner conversation would be extremely memorable."
