This is indeed a question from the vault. I posed this query to the Daily Herald copy desk in an e-poll back on Dec. 13, 2002:
If you could have dinner with anyone (living or deceased), whom would you invite and what would you talk about?
Would you sup with a long-gone historical figure, such as Napoleon Bonaparte or Abraham Lincoln? Are you more interested in having a conversation with current political leaders, such as President Barack Obama or GOP front-runner Mitt Romney?
Would you pick a beloved relative who's no longer with us? Or are in you into celebrity -- reservation for Kardashian, party of two?
