Loyal readers of Cafe San Diego are used to The People’s Reporter drill: I’m your reporter for the day. But we’re putting a different twist on it Wednesday.

In case you didn’t see the big stories plastered all over our front page the last two days, my colleague Kelly Bennett and I just completed a two-part in-depth profile into the life of George Gorton, an international political consultant who in many ways got his start here in San Diego helping guide the career of former mayor, senator and governor Pete Wilson.

But he’s lived a life that’s been much more than just politics. I didn’t want to put it into the story, but when I was working on the story I couldn’t help but describe George as a sort of mix between Austin Powers and an intelligent Forrest Gump, always ending up in the middle of some historical event.

If you haven’t yet, read part one and part two. Between our other duties here, we’ve been working on the stories since February. People say they like part two the best, for what it’s worth.

Anyways, I’m here Wednesday to take your questions. I’ve already gotten a few of them that I’ll address tomorrow.

Let me know: Anything we didn’t cover that you have questions about? Trying to reconcile, like some readers, the dual life of a cutthroat political consultant and a spiritual guru? Trying to figure out how a successful political consultant decides to live in an RV? Want to know why or how we reporters did anything or made any decisions on the story?

Now’s your chance.

Please e-mail me here or just submit any questions/comments below in the blog. I look forward to it.
