What Seven People Alive or Dead Would You Invite to Dinner?
I just finished re-reading Starman 37, Talking With David '97. James Robinson brings together Al (The Atom) Pratt, Charles (Dr. Mid-Nite) McNider, Dinah (The Black Canary) Lance, Zatara, Rex (The Hourman) Tyler, The Red Bee (Richard Raliegh) and Terry (Mr. Terrific) Sloane. Along with David Knight, Jack has dinner and advice from these dead heroes. It got me to thinking of that old conversation starter, Who would you invite to dinner?
I've been fortunate to meet certain celebrities. Working Country radio for twenty years, I've been fortunate enough to meet Garth Brooks, Brooks and Dunn, Reba McEntire, George Strait, Shania Twain, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, and Keith Urban, just to name drop a few. It's a photo op. I get to say hello; your music is great and it's both an honor to meet you and be a part of your musical career. If you're not a Country fan, imagine I'm talking about The Beatles, The Stones, Ozzy Osbourne, or an artist from your favorite genre of music.
Which brings me back to my point. If I were to choose seven people, alive or dead, or a comic book character or creator, who would it be?
I've had the opportunity to meet some of my favorite creators, like Chris Jones, Terry Beatty, Tom Nguyen and Doug Mahnke at conventions. I've had an opportunity to do a phone interview with William Katt about his The Greatest American Hero comic series. I met Adam West once in Chicago at a Batman-The Green Hornet convention. Who would I want to meet?
I invite you to list your choices in the comments below.
