Follow-up: Would you make love to an alien?MARIO CASTRO | Writer | Santa Cruz
A: We are financial carnivores. We use, we abuse and we lose; we’re ready to head out into space and we will come and use your rock as well. We are arrogant and we think we are in control and somehow we are.
Touching Thought: Yes. Let me get something new and different.
BERNADETTE BURCH | Nurse | Hollister
A: The U.S. is a beautiful country where people can experience many freedoms, like the one we’re using now– freedom of speech. There are far too many beautiful sites to name, but for example, go to River Street in Georgia.
Gimme Space: No. Definitely not, that’s weird.
GILBERT CASTILLO | Valet | Salinas
A: America is the capital of the world because we got Area 51. We have the salad bowl capital of the world where you’ll find crop circles on the Monterey coast. Also, all the aliens should come visit Mount Rushmore on the Fourth of July.
Far Out: Yes. Sure, why not?
