David Dunn Is Interviewed By A Middle School Student

Sometimes kids ask the most interesting questions.  In my Interviews with the Agent, I doubt I would ever ask an agent what his/her favorite subject in school was, but that is exactly what Matthew Pearlman of asked David Dunn in an interview, and Dunn’s answer was pretty good.  If you take a look at the list of interviewees on Pearlman’s site, you might be blown away…even more so when you realize that Pearlman is a middle school student in suburban St. Louis.

The interview with Dunn is short, so go ahead and check it out.  As for the aforementioned school subject question..

What was your favorite subject in school?

History.  One of my partners and I celebrated the signing of Ray Lewis and Todd Heap by going to Gettysburg.  History still fascinates me.  Whether it is a place, person, or time – it all effects how you think of things today.  If you can ever get to Europe, you can see so much of it right in front of your eyes.
