Open to all current and historic personalities, bad, good or simply popular.

Mine ? Vladimir Ilyich Lenin - why ? Easy, because he is the most peace loving person on Earth. Never causes anybody any harm or trouble. A feather duster each day and he is as happy as a Spring cricket in the mating season.

Actually Lenin "is" nothing right now except dead and has been since 1924. At one time maybe he "was" all those things but right now he isn't.

Isaac Asimov and Fyodor Dostoevsky, two writers who had imagination and who asked questions that should be asked of the thinking.

Roy Chapman Andrews -- inspiration for Indiana Jones. I read his books, especially the story of his Mongolian expeditions, when I was a kid.
