Teaser for tomorrow

Question: What do Grammy-winning singer Tracy Chapman, filmmaker George Lucas, actresses Glenn Close and Thandie Newton, the late Christian evangelist Billy Graham, Nobel Prize-winning poet Octavio Paz, best-selling authors Michael Crichton and Tess Gerritsen, the Chief Executive Officer of bookstore chain Barnes & Noble (Steve Riggio), the first Presidents of Kenya (Jomo Kenyatta) and Nigeria (Benjamin Nnamdi Azikiwe), and Britain's heir apparent, H.R.H. Prince Charles, have in common?

If you have any idea, feel free to post your answer on this entry's comment's section. If you don't (but, I trust, would like to find out), check back at this blog tomorrow for the answer, and more! :)

No idea but I'm willing to guess:

Um....all been written about in Time Magazine..?

All football fans,... not all Arsenal fans?

okay, I give up...I did do a random birthday check with no luck...

Thanks for playing but sorry, no congratulatory cigars to hand out as yet! Still, all should be revealed within the next 12 hours... :b

You can play 6 degrees of separation with them?

They all have something to do with Philadelphia?

They all like beer a lot?

Thinking some more...I guess they all could have been written about in Time Magazine. But, to narrow things down even further, what do all 12 of those individuals have in common with me as well as one another (yet not have in common with everyone else in the world -- as surely would be the case with such as the suggestion that "You can play 6 degrees of separation with them?")? ;b

Anyways, still "no" to the particular connection that I was thinking about... ;)

Hmmm, this is a tough question, and now I'm so curious of the answer!

I have no idea what the connection can be...

one more try

you've heard them speak, sing, etc or seen these people in person during your life in Malaysia or while you were in school somewhere?
