Where is your hometown? "My hometown for the past 35 years has been Chicago, although I was born and raised in Memphis."
Where did you go to college? "I went to the University of the South [Sewanee, Tenn.], also known as Sewanee."
What is the last gadget you bought yourself? "I switched from a BlackBerry to the iPhone 4. I really do miss BlackBerry's keypad and the ability to type email on it, and so my emails have been dramatically reduced in their length ... a blessing to my kids. But the information apps and the ability to get onto the web -- all of that stuff on the iPhone is just incredible."
What book are you currently reading? "I'm just about to finish up 'Golf In the Kingdom,' by Michael Murphy."
