Ross Perot is Now Down in the Basement and Taking Your Questions
On Wednesday, the same day it was reported that H. Ross Perot lost a bundle in a real-estate assets hedge fund now absent its assets and funds, Stephen J. Dubner put out the call: Who's got questions for Ross Perot? The co-author of Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything, who also co-authors a spin-off blog for The New York Times, conducted a similar survey for a Ron Paul chitchat last week and promises to post the Dallas billionaire's answers shortly, soon as he can pull himself away from keeping track of the national debt. Only took four comments, incidentally, to get to: "Why did you choose Admiral Stockdale as your vice presidential candidate?" The answer to that question is after the jump. --Robert Wilonsky
