You have to give this some thought, people. You need to be prepared.
I mean, let's face it, the interviewer can make your life sweet apple juice and daisies, or a carbon copy or the OJ nightmare, depending on what he or she wants to have happen.
Take Nancy Grace. Am I the only one who thinks that everyone she interviews looks guilty? Do you think it's a coincidence that Nancy never interviewed Mother Teresa? No way. I think Mother Teresa just had a very astute PR guy.

Or maybe you want to just take bets on the likelihood of me getting into the news for doing something heroic in the first place, since I spend way more time driving carpools than I do flying airplanes.
And then there's the very valid point, that it's possible I just spend entirely too much time alone with my free thoughts.
