What meeting -- real or imaginary --
would be the most fun to plan?



"Held on the Space Station, it would be a discussion on ‘The Limitless Bounds of Imagination.' Panelists would be Walt Disney, Steven Spielberg, J.K. Rowling, George Lucas and Steve Jobs. The room would seat 400 -- half of whom would be kids -- and attendees would ask questions via text-messaging. The food: peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, s'mores, M&Ms and gummy bears, all washed down with chocolate milk."

"An outdoors meeting on the grounds of the Magic Kingdom, with the Disney characters all around. We would have dine-arounds at Epcot, some of the best live entertainment, easy transportation between parks and great shopping."

"The SEC [Southeastern Conference] Media Days. As a graduate of the University of Alabama, I would love to coordinate the excitement that surrounds the event that starts each college football season -- especially in the South, where football is nearly as important as religion."
