Dr. Ruth Has a Question for Michael Bloomberg

Katie Couric, via a new Tumblr blog, has been keeping readers posted about tomorrow’s big Yahoo debut. The global anchor solicited questions from readers for her conversation with Michael Bloomberg and today shared this post-taping photo from the United Nations (Bloomberg was recently appointed special envoy for cities and climate change):

Couric thanked everyone for the suggested interview questions and has been sharing some of her favorites. Among the highlighted selections is this one from Dr. Ruth Westheimer:

Is he going to keep fighting for more gun control? I’m not a stranger to guns as I was a sniper in the Israeli underground, but too many people are dying from guns in this country.

Intriguingly, there are also as highlighted by Couric a number of suggested questions from recent NYC mayoral candidate Ceceilia Berkowitz. She, Dr. Ruth and the rest will have to wait until Friday to see if their question(s) were used.

P.S. If this is the first time you’ve heard about Dr. Ruth’s sniper days with Haganah, you might want to click here.
