Unspun: Prince George's County Council Member Tony Knotts
The Washington Post Magazine's "Unspun" interviews take a look at the person behind the position in local government and politics. See excerpts of this Sunday's edition below or read the full article.
Did you play any sports in high school?
Ran track. Dashes, 100-yard dash. ... I wasn't a distance runner, unless I was being chased in the neighborhood.
What's your guilty food indulgence?
Apple pie, and if you put some ice cream on it, I'm in trouble.
If you had all the money in the world, what would you buy?
I would probably buy a good life for other people -- give it away. Because if I had all the money in the world, that means that no one else has any money.
What music are you listening to right now?
Really, I listen to a lot of gospel music. ... I'm getting into that. It's more easy on the mind, and [it's] the way I think, too. It's more pleasant on my brain.
Are you religious?
I'm religious in my beliefs. It's not a pressing issue, but I find ... in the Bible, there are a lot of parts that apply to what I do every day. ... It's all about glorifying God.
What have you never done that you'd like to try?
I've done skydiving. I've never done bungee jumping, but in the Marine Corps, we did a lot of crazy things. ... Maybe I'd like to be rich to give away all the money.
