I am participating in JLP’s Question of the Day Marathon, and today, it’s my turn to ask the question. Also, I have a free copy of The Big Money by Fred Kobrick to give away to one random commenter if at least 50 unique individuals (not including trackbacks) post their responses to this question below:

Don’t forget to enter your email address (or website address) so I can contact you if you’re selected to win the book. I won’t use the address for anything else, I promise.
