Ask @smoothjazznmore:

Is there a documentary or book that really changed the way you thought about something?

In 2004, PBS' Frontline premiered a documentary called The 'Dark Side'. It was about the events leading up to the Iraq War. Up until that time I was a staunch supporter of George W. Bush. I was a former military man. I wanted war and more importantly get rid of Saddam Hussein. But after watching the scheming and downright lies of Dick Cheney, I was disgustingly embarrassed and felt used by the premise to get into war. I vowed to never again support any Republican candidates for any purpose, ever! If you haven't seen it, I suggest you watch. It's a shocking and disgusting tale of what happens when people grab power. Watch at your own peril.

Do you believe in love at first sight? Why or why not?

Yes! I do believe in 'Love at first sight'! I believe there's a feeling you get when you see a person for the first time that you know he/she is 'the one'.

What's the most important lesson you've learned in life?

That nothing in life is guaranteed. That everything can be taken away in a heart beat. The people you love won't be there forever.
