Before you leave for #ELGL17, what’s the biggest project facing you at work?

New website? Done. Annual Report? Done. Start Twitter battle with Plano, Texas? Done. Looks like I’ve got a clean slate.

Window, middle, or aisle – which is your preferred seat on an airplane?

Aisle. I hate having to ask people to move.

When I think of Detroit, I think about…

Cars. Clint Eastwood. Eminem. Motown. The Bad Boy Pistons of the 1980s.

What’s the best article or book that you’ve read about Detroit?

I don’t read anything longer than 140 characters.

Detroit is the home of ‘Motown’. If you started a Motown group, what would you name it?

George Hawkins & the Pipes?

Who is the most famous person in your cell phone contacts?

Wow, that question makes me feel like a total nobody. (I’m still checking my phone.)

What question(s) should we have asked?

What is the shortest intercontinental flight in the world? Did you ever crash land on that flight?
