Aw, poop! Nothing like starting the morning feeling dumb. Wink

Sylvia Plath: I know she is a writer- if I had to get more specific I'd say a poet?
Mitch Albom: He wrote Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People you meet in Heaven. Both books I really enjoyed.
Warren Buffet: A super rich guy that I don't know much about.
Dave Matthews: The lead singer of Dave Matthews Band
Alan Greenspan: Um... I think he has something to do with the Federal Reserve?
Your State Senator: I know one of their names. I can't think of the other one.
Your Great-Grandfather on your mother's side: I know nothing about him. I believe he was in law enforcement of some kind. Jane Austen: An author, who I don't know as much about as Kayla and Joy will. I did read Pride and Prejudice though.
Morgan Freeman: An actor that everyone knows. Didn't he marry someone way younger than him that he was related to in some way? A stepdaughter I'm thinking?

Your Great-Grandfather on your mother's side: He was a kook. Very, very old southern gentleman in his thoughts and ways. Interesting stories about him to say the least.
Jane Austen: Wrote books.

Sylvia Plath: Wrote The Bell Jar
Mitch Albom: ???
Warren Buffet: Very rich man
Dave Matthews: Lead singer of DMB. Also smokes a lot of pot, or does involuntarily by way of second had smoke. You know this if you have been to one of his concerts.
Alan Greenspan: Used to be Chairman of the Federal Reserve. I used to hear his name on the news a lot and got the impression that he controlled all of the money! I guess that was true to a certain extent.
Your State Senator: Kay Bailey Hutchison, breifly ran for Governor against Perry.
Your Great-Grandfather on your mother's side: Unfortunately he was an abusive alcoholic Sad
Jane Austen: She wrote wonderful novels Smile
Morgan Freeman: He was supposedly engaged to his step granddaughter here recently but apparently that was a complete fabrication by the tabloids (big surprise). I believe he has also played The US President and God in different movies.
