Who is the scariest guy in America, and why? Nicolas Cage. He has a tremendous amount of angst that comes across in his films and his acting.

Who do you think is the scariest guy in Colorado Springs? Ohhhh, I can't put a name to it but I would say that it is a land developer.

Who is the scariest woman you know? Janet Reno, because of some of her views, and her presence, I think, can be very intimidating.

What is the scariest thing about Colorado Gov. Bill Owens? I want to say his IQ, but that's reserved for the president. I would say, what we don't know about him.

Who is the scariest man in Colorado Springs? Probably the director of the city streets -- the gentleman who's in charge of road construction. Or the city developer.

Who is the scariest woman you know? The woman who asked me for tongue tape.

What is tongue tape? That's what I said. She said that there was a certain brand of tape that was manufactured for people that play saxophone to tape their teeth. She was scary!

What is the scariest thing about Bill Owens? That he is still in office.

Who do you think is the scariest man in America? Newt Gingrich. He just seems gross and greasy. There're lots of skeletons in his closet and he doesn't care. I just don't like him.

Who is the scariest man in Colorado Springs? Buzz. He's got earrings and makeup, and he's a big, burly mountain-man type of guy, with a beard. I keep telling him not to wear mini-skirts and halter tops; it is scary!

Who is the scariest woman you know? There's a waitress I know named Tricia. She scares off all the customers.

What is the scariest thing about Bill Owens? His toupee.

Who do you think the scariest man in America is? The men and women who do the AM talk shows on conspiracy theories -- the ones who think there is always something behind the way people act the way they do. The scariest men in America are the ones that can use their mouths to influence a crowd.

Who is the scariest man in Colorado Springs? Anybody who has a cause but goes about it in the wrong way.

What is the scariest thing about Gov. Bill Owens? I've been reading good things about him. He doesn't want to have an extra session that would cost the taxpayers money, when no one knows what they want to do in the session. I don't really have a fear of him, but I've only been here a year, so that may change.
