I sort of need to figure out who is going to be the next person I pseudo-interview in a column called the “Philosopher’s Stone.”

Given the following: Socrates, (Professor Albus Dumbledore),* (A lump of talking Play-Doh), (A future version of myself), Dr. Sigmund Freud, (Young Freud), (Young Dumbledore), (Young Socrates), (A young version of myself),* and the Men in Black, pick the next person.

*all those in parentheses were Summer editions, which notoriously only go out to long-time fans.

One person wanted me to reinterview Dumbledore (though I kind of wanted him to stay on only in summer editions), one wanted me to interview Sesame Street characters (though this might have Trademark problems), and I’ve come up with a few others that seem fun:

Jesus, Buddha, Zeus, etc. (I’m afraid I might get weary of this, though…)
An older, senile, senile, kooky, and/or crotchety version of myself (though this seems more of a summer thing as well)
The Grim Reaper (this seems too Family Guy for some reason)
Anyone else you can think up (though I sort of wanted to go back to philosophers and scientists, but I can’t think of any famous ones that people would like to read about).

First three responders get a shiny one-dollar dollar bill.
AND the issue in question.


  1. 🙂 You get brownie points for making me laugh. Now, if only you weren’t anonymous, I might give you that dollar… But I doubt you’d send me your mailing address anyway. So I’m off scot free! Ha ha!
