FOUR PEOPLE YOU’D REALLY LOVE TO HAVE DINNER WITH
When my wife and I met a couple of years ago, this question was one of the prompt questions in the Reader Matches online thing. My answer then was:

3. Lenny Bruce—comedian, social commentator

Since the “Match” ad worked, and I successfully met someone wonderful and married her, I’d have to take Lucinda off the list and replace her with someone else—maybe Susan Sarandon… (“Ouch—why’d you kick me, honey?”)
