Home: Bethesda
Occupation: Maryland attorney general

BlackBerry or iPhone?

BlackBerry, and it's just died. I'm absolutely helpless. I feel lost.

When you were a kid, was there a TV show you wouldn't miss?

"All in the Family," and I guess "The Flintstones" would be the second choice. I used to rush home to watch them. I still watch them when they're on.

What do you do to relax?

Relaxing is not my strength, so I unfortunately rarely do it.

What is atop your reading pile?

"What It Takes," by Richard Ben Cramer.

What song did you most recently download to your MP3 player?

I don't know how to download songs to my iPod, so that's not an issue. I would not begin to know how to download a song from one thing to another.

What's your biggest goof?

Not shooting more in the lacrosse Ivy League championship in 1985. That's always bothered me. We ended up losing by one goal.

What's your favorite getaway?

Skiing with my buddies, with my family. On a daily basis, I read every night before I go to sleep.

What was the most unexpected thing from your last political campaign?

My wife buying a new house, a new dog and a new car while I was somewhat distracted.

What would you be doing if you weren't attorney general?

What I would like to be doing is be a fifth-grade lacrosse coach.
