I mentioned in my Walter Cronkite tribute thread that when I was a youngster he was the only public figure that I asked my mom if we could invite him over for dinner. I think I started asking around the age of 5 or 6.
Here’s the Q of the day:
When you were a kid, what public figure from your childhood years would you have wanted to have over for dinner? It can also be a fantasy figure like H.R. Pufnstuf, Tinkerbell, whatever.
