Who I wanted to be when I was 9

The guy on the left. Yes indeed, I wanted to be Carl Kolchak intrepid reporter and hunter of monsters.

A comedian, I can't remember who, once commented that it would be a very interesting world if we were all what we wanted to be as children--a world full of pirates, astronauts, policemen, and ballerinas.

I wanted to be Carl. He drove a cool car; a convertible Mustang. He wore a cool suit. (This opinion is yet more proof of why clerical garb is a very good idea.) But most importantly, he fought monsters. Very cool. I later moved on to Fr. Merrin from The Exorcist. (Before Carl, was Scotty from Star Trek.) But Carl is still cool.
