The Slow Food matron sits down for a Q&A session with The Wall Street Journal, and in addition to her usual talking points, Waters discusses how, as a 64-year-old, she has adjusted to age: "I am an elder statesman. I have a platform. I've been doing this restaurant for 36 years ... That can be meaningful to certain people. A lot of my friends now are chief executive officers of businesses and engaged in politics. There's access to the powers that be. We need that in order to make this kind of change. So I'm taking advantage of it. I'm helping in any way I can by opening up the biggest doors I can open up." [WSJ]
