I heard this fun news item, “Turkey,
Cranberries And Composers At The Table
” on NPR this morning and thought I’d do it with a twist.

Which historical, legal celebrities would you want to invite to your Thanksgiving dinner? And to make it more fun, we will open it up to fictional figures, as well.

Here’s my short list:

  1. Atticus Finch – a southern gentlemen with the most reflective, eloquent style
  2. Horace Rumpole – a down-trodden British barrister with a wit as acerbic as the wine that he drank
  3. Abraham Lincoln – he’s my presidential crush
  4. Barbara Jordan – in the U.S. House of Representatives, she had the best voice!
How about you? Tell me who you’d like to share your turkey with and why.
