    You are hosting a tea party to get to know people better. Who would you invite dead or alive? Why?

    O.K.  I would sit RenĂ© Descartes between Sonam Gyatso and Tenzing Gyatso.  I would sit Zarathustra between Mozart and Michelangelo.  I would place Sigmund Freud between Baba Yaga and Bluebeard and  I would sit Leonardo da Vinci between Confucius and Plato.

    Descartes of 'I think therefore I am' between the 1st or 3rd Dalai Llama and his reincarnated self is just the start of the many reasons for my choices.  I would love to hear the discussions between all the groups.  I have imaginary evil tea companions beside Sigmund Freud as it will allow us all to consider the ramifications of these topics from some distance.

    Kurt Vonnegut:  A great author with tremendous insight.  A dash of the absurd, a dash of society bashing, two spoonfuls of sarcasm, and the ability to create mutliple worlds while inhabiting only one.  We lost a great one when he passed on.

    I'd invite all my Grandparents and Great-Grandparents and all their brothers and sisters. Famous people are nothing to me. I want to know about the real people who were in my history.

      Cool, That Grrl.  Make sure you do this with the ones still around.

    I would seat Michael Jackson between Ted Bundy and Jefferey Dahmer, Jesus between Hitler and Moussalini and place C.S Lewis at the head of the table, JFK at the foot and Jack the Ripper would serve.

      Evil serial killers with a pop singer in between.  Evil dictators with THE messianic evangelist in between.  Author at one end President at the other.  Another serial killer bringing the cakes and tea. Where do you sit in all this badegg.

    I would invite Eleanor Roosevelt, Queen Elizabeth I, and some of my ancestors.  It would be interesting.

    I would ask Lyndon Baines Johnson and pin him down on what he knew and what he did to facilitate the assassination of JFK.  I would also bring in Jack Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald to gain their perspective.  I would have to have Amelia Earheart...because I just have to know when things went wrong and what the aftermath was like.  I would also ask Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, and John Wesley Hardin and get a feel for their true persona.  Marilyn Monroe would be there because I think there might be a lot more person there than we knew on the screen.  Natalie Wood is on the guest list because she was one beautiful woman and I really want to know what happened on that November night at Catalina Island. I would ask Vincent Van Gogh, Edgar Allan Poe along with Helen Keller, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, and James Dean.  Henry Kissinger and Robert McNamara would be there to fire the discussion on the Vietnam Conflict.  I would also invite every person who has been awarded The Medal of Honor to hear their stories first hand.  I would also invite many of the great songwriters of history especially those in the Country music genre to get their take on what was going on when they wrote particular pieces.  Vince Gill and Allison Krause would be there because they are talented, fun, and interesting people.  There would be no Kardashians present...count on it nor would there be a mention of their name at the event at any time.  I think that would be a very interesting tea party.

      Do you think any of the people you brought back from the dead would be interested in what is happening in the world today?  They might even want to get up to date with who is who in popular culture. Maybe you could find room for just one Kardashian?

    At my tea party I'd invite Jane Austen, Alexander Graham Bell, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, LaVyrle Spencer, Bob Hope, and maybe Dimitiri Mendeleev. There might be room for Conoleeza Rice and perhaps Flannery O'Conner. I'd like a wide mix. Oh, and Homer and Chaucer, if for no other reason then to discuss people then and now!
