Empty Seat at the Roundtable

As some of you have already noticed, the Gentlemen were unfortunately made to bid farewell to John Barkmeyer. As some of you may have noticed, I run a little segment here called the Roundtable, where each week the Gentlemen answer a question posed to them the week before. The absence of our lost Gentleman leaves a open and empty seat which needs to be filled.

Therefore, this week I have something very special to propose. For all of you who would seek a spot at this illustrious gathering, here's a chance to demonstrate a few things. First, your character. Second, your ability to meet a deadline. Finally, a test to see how closely you read the blog, because if you're just skimming over things you'll probably miss this post.

My proposition is thus; if you are one of the many whom have expressed interest in becoming the 12th Gentleman, you are free to respond to the Roundtable question this week. Send your responses to DavidLBSJ@gmail.com along with, if you like, a picture of yourself to be posted along with your response. Your Roundtable answer will then be grouped in with those of the Gentlemen, and you'll see it here on the blog next week.

Well, I won't keep you in suspense any longer. Your question is as follows;

The President tells you he is giving you unlimited time and resources to solve the greatest problem facing the United States. He gives you no further specifics. What do you fix, and how?

I will need your answers in by Sunday, April 26th if you want them to be included. Think hard, prospective Gentleman, and we're looking forward to reading what you have to offer.
