Well, since we're very good with this whodunnit thing, I decided to launch this little game here.
It's pretty simple. I am someone (person, cartoon, book character, whatever) and everyone else can have a guess at who I am.
The one who guesses it has the next round, and we'll try to guess on him/her.
I hope this works. :-)
To start, I'll give you all one hint: I'm a real person.

Ok...

Sports? Actor? Politics? Scientist? Army? Firefighter? Author? Activist? Singer/Muscian? T.V Presenter? Cook?

Hometown heros I can think of:

Steve Bushemi: workd with the NYFD and when 911 happened worked alongside fellow firefighters without press.

Ty... : builds homes for people in need on Homes: Extreme Makeover.

All your hints are such teasers, guys...I'm usually really obtuse when faced with clues like that. But, for now, Emily's got it covered, like always :)

ok, answers here we go.
you didn't score any direct hits but yes, our guy DID:
-write several books (some of which you may have even read)
-serve in the army (US)
-work as a teacher (people used to line up around the block to attend his classes)
-work as an activist (especially for the environment when it wasn't really the glamourous thing to do)
-present a couple of tv shows, even though the shows weren't about him


but i'm sorry you still have NOT hit on our guy's main field of work.


he is NOT:
Clark Kent
Steve Buscemi (sp?)
Ty Pennington
in sports (except in college i think), acting, politics, science, firefighting, singing or playing music, or cooking

Happy Hunting! L

Is he still alive?
_________________________________________________________

Was he born in the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s or 80s?
Was he active in the 30s, 40s, 50s, 70s, 80s, 90s or later?
_________________________________________________________

Did he serve in a war?

WWII?
Korean?
Vietnam?
Gulf?
Yugoslavia

Or another conflict the US has been in involved in since 1945?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_United_States_military_operations

Was going to list a few but there are way too many.
_________________________________________________________

Were his TV shows that he presented about:

Science? War? History? The envirnoment? Religion? Fiction? Other?
_________________________________________________________

Quite stumped. And should I just be asking one question at a time?

Thanks Breit/Luc :)

No, 'fraid he's not. :-/

He was born before the 1930's.
And he was active in his field for all of those decades.

He served in World War II.

The TV shows could prob'ly be categorized in the "fiction" and "other" genres.

And no, you don't have to ask just one question at a time. ;-)

Keep 'em comin!! ;-D

Is he world famous? Or just US famous?

Does he have a famous wife and/or children?

Was he a professor? (University/College) or a school teacher?

Were his books fiction or non-fiction?
Were his books for adults or children?

He's known in both the U.S. and throughout the world.

His wife(ves) was/were not particularly famous. One of his five children is a horse trainer of some repute, but our mystery guy doesn't have any ties to horses or equestrian sports.

He was a teacher for a brief time, but he's not really known for it. He was a lecturer at various schools, but again, it's not something he's famous for. He was given an honorary doctorate from several universities.

His books were primarily fiction. They were designed primarily for children, but adults have enjoyed his creations just as much as kids.

(Our guy is more famous for his contributions to newspapers than his books, however. Just thought I would clarify that. ;-)

The Mystery guy IS:

Known for writing several books (some of which you may have even read)
Served in the army (US), and was a WWII veteran.
Worked as a teacher (people used to line up around the block to attend his classes)
Worked as an activist (especially for the environment when it wasn't really the glamourous thing to do)
Presented a couple of tv shows, even though the shows weren't about him
Born before 1930.
Active in his field from the 1930's-1990's.
Famous both in the U.S. and throughout the world.
Has a daughter who's a famous horse trainer.
Known for books (and newspaper contributions) that were fiction.
Known for "fiction" and "other" genre television shows.
Had an audience of both children and adults.
Holds several honorary doctorate degrees.


He is NOT:
Clark Kent
Steve Buscemi (sp?)
Ty Pennington
In sports (except in college i think), acting, politics, science, firefighting, singing or playing music, or cooking
Currently alive.
Married to anybody famous.
Known for either teaching or lecturing.


Clarification: He was a patron and huge fan of ice hockey and other ice sports, though he was never an athlete in those sports. He was quite well-known for owning and running an ice arena in an unusual area of the U.S.

Hope all that helps a bit. ;-)
Keep it comin'!! ;-D

I'm doing neither, but unfortunately nothing about this guy rings any bells with me at all.
