1. What, to you, is perfect happiness?
Sitting on a Caribbean beach while a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model plays a ukulele for me.

2. What one material possession would you save from your home in the event of a fire (assuming your family was safe)?
My Ronald Reagan books.

3. What's the best advice you've ever been given?
My father always tells me, upon making an important decision on a City Council vote, or sometimes just something I’m thinking about: do what you know is right, no matter who or what is pressuring you, then stick to that decision.

4. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
My voice. I’d like a James Earl Jones voice. (Spoken like Darth Vader): ”Hello, my name is Rusty…”

5. What is your greatest fear?
That people I know never accept Jesus Christ as their Savior, or live an unhappy life away from God.

6. What real or fictional person do you most identify with?
My mother and father. I’m at the age where I’m turning into my parents. But, fortunately, I have near-perfect parents.

7. What is your greatest extravagance?
Way too many Polo shirts. If I can ever get a deal on a Porsche, it will be that.

8. If money weren't an object, how would you spend your time?
Traveling the world with my friends, probably aboard a really nice boat.

9. What is your favorite thing about yourself?
My friends and my family.

10. What trait do you most admire in another person?
Loyalty.

11. What trait do you most deplore in another person?
Undependability.

12. Who are your favorite musicians?
Michael Jackson (yes, he was weird, but talented), Journey, Bon Jovi, Lifehouse, Papa Roach, John Mellencamp, Rolling Stones, and, of course, Elvis Presley.

13. What are your favorite books?
The Bourne Trilogy by Robert Ludlum and any book by Matthew Reilly (“The 5 Greatest Warriors,” “Temple,” “Ice Station”).

14. What talent would you most like to have?
Either to play the drums or sing like Elvis.
