Über Sternen muß er wohnen

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is easily impressed, if this interview is any indication:
If you could sit down with one person from history, who would it be?

I would like to sit down and talk to Beethoven, my favorite composer. That would be amazing. I suspect what would be most fascinating is the discovery that these people are human too.
Really? That would be more fascinating than the discovery that Beethoven was a lizard-like creature from another solar system who needed twice-daily injections of growth hormones in order to survive Earth's crushing atmospheric pressure? (That would go a long way towards explaining the whole middle period.)

Her stewardship of the Hewlett-Packard Corporation while CEO was almost as stupid as that remark, so it's not exactly a surprise.

I imagine that Beethoven would be just tickled to talk to her, too.
