What Would You Ask Alan Mulally, CEO of Ford Motor Company

Sometimes having a blog is a little bit like Being John Malkovich. I never know what's coming my way, and occasionally I wonder whether I have momentarily stepped into someone else's life.

Case in point, this Monday, I will join Alan Mulally, the CEO of Ford, and a small number of other bloggers and journalists at a roundtable brunch! That's an experience I would have never dreamed of having when I first started blogging about our family adventures.

I'm thinking hard about what I'd like to ask him, and I'd like your input as well. D you have questions about safety? gas mileage? ergonomics? something else - let me know, and I'll do my best to ask them all.

    Cool! I'd ask him about integrated child safety seats and "boosters" and the possibility of making seatbelts more adjustable for children to eliminate the need for boosters. Have a great time!

    I'd ask him about hybrids, electric cars, etc. What is the biggest hurdle in terms of making this technology accessible to everyone? Does he see a time when all or most cars will be environmentally friendly?

    I'd ask him what he's doing with morale. What's he doing to bring about a positive atmosphere when most people are afraid, daily, of losing their job?

    Great questions! You all are like the cliff's notes of interviews ;)

    Why don't cars come with 5-point harnesses for everyone? Why aren't car seats built in?

    I don't have a question but I had to say this is super duper cool! What an opportunity.
