Who2 is very close to the magical round number of 3000 profiles.
The profiles leading up to 3000 have been the usual marvelous jumble of types. 2997 was Mel Blanc, the voice of cartoon icon Bugs Bunny. 2998 was Mary Todd Lincoln, the troubled wife of President Abraham Lincoln. And 2999, just published, is of clergyman and anti-war activist William Sloane Coffin.
(Trust us, the American Idol contestants will be back soon.)
We’ve chosen a fitting figure to be number 3000, and that profile will be posted in the next few days. Hint: It’s a male, he died in 1972, and he has some connection to the number 3000. Stay tuned.
