Do you have any interest in reading the Elizabeth Smart story?

What is your natural hair color and do you color it? 

If you were granted ONE wish, what would it be and why? 

What is your favorite Doritos flavor if you like them? 

What are you doing right now?

Jams, it is no more likely to wish cancer away than to wish poverty away. Exactly how would you evaporate cancer?

Actually, Cancer can strike anybody at any time.  There are too many variables to say the same thing about poverty...  Or were you talking about 3rd world poverty mops?

Let me amend my wish.  I wish that everyone had nourishing food enough to eat, and climate appropriate clothing, and a shelter from the elements.   I wish they had access to transportation for where they needed to go.   I wish they had access to basic education and safe sewers and could afford to go to the doctors.

I also wish that only people like Jamblessed could afford to eat out in nice restaurants and have designer clothes and real Uggs and homes with real wood floors and granite countertops and Volvos and really wonderful schools and universities and optional medical procedures and contact lenses and premium health care, so that we could maintain the important distinction, you know?

Bravo bord!  That took a lot of guts..  Good idea, we start by not shoving down throats all the fancies you enjoy too.

It does not have to be logical or doable. That is sort of the whole point with the wish thing.

Do you have any interest in reading the Elizabeth Smart story? --Yes. I caught a bit of her Today show interview and am amazed at what a strong person she is.

What is your natural hair color and do you color it?  -- dark brown with reddish highlights.  Yes, right now it is very close to my natural (non-gray) color. But i've done lighter brown, I've done highlights, I've done very red ...

If you were granted ONE wish, what would it be and why?  -- I guess more wishes is out of the question?  I could go all uber philosphical and ask for world peach and happiness ... but I guess I'd wish for my family (extended) to be at peace with themselves and the world around them.

What is your favorite Doritos flavor if you like them?  -- I'm not a huge chip fan (well, I am .. but because of that I don't eat them very often). I'd probably say plain because you can use them with queso, salsa, dip, etc.

What are you doing right now? -- answering these questions. But in a bigger sense, I'm eating lunch and surfing.

Why only third world country poverty.....do you only wish that cancer was cured in first world countries?

Really? Anyone with a lick of sense would realize the "relief of world poverty" would mean, well RELIEF OF WORLD POVERTY - you know, as in no one in the world living at or below the poverty line (as gray as that line may be).

You asked us for "wishes" not "realistically attainable goals".

I'm enjoying leftover chili and a cold honey crisp apple, a fine lunch!  How about you?
