If You Could Pose One Question To God, What Would That Question Be? 

Week of December 20, 2000

Shawn Kelly
Owner, Kroma Contemporary Living

"What, like God is standing on a street corner, answering questions for people? Who really shot JFK? That'd be the first, and maybe if he's in a benevolent mood he'd answer a couple more, like, when will Eminem go away, and why is my girlfriend so moody? She'll kill me for saying that."

Brad Gilliland
Sandwich Artist, Subway

"It's your planet and we can only do so much down here, so why are you letting it go to shit?"

Tom Clary
Bingo Organizer, St. Phlebitis Grade School

"Why are you so reclusive? Where you been, boy?"

Randi Nelle
Massage Therapist

"Did Al Gore win in Florida?"

Walter Hollman
Sheet Metal Worker, Local 93

"Do politicians have souls, too?"

Patrick Ploch
Student, UM-St. Louis

"Well, what the hell happened to the dinosaurs? I mean, you just really want to know, were they a mistake or something? Or Sodom and Gomorrah -- did that get on his nerves, or what? But I'd definitely want proof that it is God -- you know, get him to perform some minor miracle really quick or something."
