An interview with our own Dr. Boli and his invented alter ego Christopher Bailey. For example:

PETE: Dr. Boli, do have any words to describe your relationship with your persona, Chris Bailey?

DR. BOLI:  What bicentenarian gentleman would not wish to imagine himself, even if only for a moment, as a young man of less than half a century again? It is true that one would not wish to give up one’s age and experience: youth, as the popular saying goes, is a nice place to visit, but you wouldn’t want to live there. Still, an occasional excursion, even if only in imagination, is refreshing, as long as proper safety protocols are observed.
