RoundTable Redux

As I joined this blog a few months after its inception, I was not around to take part in the first few RoundTable discussions. It's a shame, because they were some pretty cool questions, so I figured I'd give them a go on my own.

"If you were to name one person you know who is a true gentleman, who would it be?"

See In Memoriam

"If you could take revenge on any person, who would it be, what would you do, and why?"

I'm not so much big into personal grievances, at least not after spending an hour in a snit, so I'd go corporate with my revenge seeking. I know it's more than one person, but this is my post, so I can break the rules.

I'd force every Fox Network executive who had a hand in canceling Firefly to sit in a room and watch endless hours of reality TV. Bad reality TV. And Geraldo. And the 700 Club. And any other crappy mindless drivel that's made it onto the airwaves that will remind them that they pulled the plug on one of the most clever, well-acted shows in years.

Damn you, Fox....

"What is your ultimate winter mix?"

Damn you Fox for your sudden and yet inevitable betrayal!
