P. J. O'Rourke, satirist, 59
I'd like to shoot more birds. Quail, just like Dick Cheney.

Bill Cowher, football coach, 49
Learn to play the piano. My girls have taken lessons, and it's something I'd like to do myself.

Cal Ripken Jr., baseball player, 46
Parlay my baseball career into a successful business career.

Dan Quayle, former vice president, 59
I have a goal of never going sky diving, unlike Bush 41.
