  1. Whenever someone poses the “which historical figure would you most like to meet” question, my go-to choice is almost always Mark Twain. Someone I could both admire *and* imagine having an interesting conversation with.

    Also, this is a wonderful idea for a blog. Thank you for putting it together.
