Who’s your favorite New Yorker, living or dead, real or fictional?
Any cab driver that doesn’t sigh when I ask to go to the airport.
What’s the best meal you’ve eaten in New York?
The ones I prepare myself. (See question 8.)
In one sentence, what do you actually do all day in your job?
We mostly try to design the perfect exit strategy for Iraq, and if we can’t come up with an answer, we take a bunch of pictures.
Would you still live here on a $35,000 salary?
Of course! Anyone who answers this question negatively should be ridden out on a rail.
What’s the last thing you saw on Broadway?
A Moon for the Misbegotten.
Do you give money to panhandlers?
Yes. It’s the neighborly thing to do.
What’s your drink?
Good idea. Dewar’s.
How often do you prepare your own meals?
Does a bowl of cereal count? About four times a day then.
What’s your favorite medication?
I’ll say the blue one.
What’s hanging above your sofa?
A pair of deer antlers wearing a tiara. I don’t know much of the deer, but I know she was into world peace.
How much is too much to spend on a haircut?
I’ll cut yours for ten dollars in my kitchen.
What am I, a 4-year-old?

Who? Wait, is he the guy married to Melania Knauss?

That the cab drivers don’t strike more often. Kidding. Just kidding.

He’s dead now.

Two weeks ago. A Prius. I have to say I prefer a more ecofriendly ride: the F/V train.
Who should be the next president?
No way am I answering this.
Times, Post, or Daily News?
Which one has “Page Six”? Then the other two.
Where do you go to be alone?
Freemans, Friday nights around 10 p.m. Absolutely deserted.
What makes someone a New Yorker?
When you are, you’ll just know.
