8. Detroit may be one.

13. Strategy is big and lengthy and proactive. Tactics is local and brief and reactive. (My own definition. Hope it works.:rolleyes:) Put another way, strategy is Bill Belicheck. tactics is Tom Brady.

Tactics are the actual ways in which the strategies are executed. Strategy

goals and objectives. "Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory.
Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat." Sun Tzu or was it Larry Ellison?

Let's assume we have said all that is to be said here.

1..Dr. Who--SoCal & NCor

2.. Just you wait, 'Enry 'Udson, Just youwait...for K9 gave you away.

3..Fischer (with a "c"). VTC & NCor, post-hint.

4..Cat Stevens, being himself in the early '70's, no matter how NCor spins it.

5..Lots of you with Jeff Foxworthy.

6..VTC, K9 & geordi with the cutesy Piggly Wiggly.

7..Post-hint NCor offers "conscience" and "ego ideal".

8..Brewers & Tigers, a trio here.

9..JohnSteed & Emma Peel, the question wording wasn't calling for the actors, but the characters. 4 here.

10..Quite a few years ago the APA announced its disapproval of her facile advice/analysis. VAUC & NCor
both say the APA never told them.

11..The House of Seven Gables

12..The Help is attracting oodles of dough; credit to VAUC.

13..Well, several of you are in the right pew, though often sketchy. See NCor, his Eminent Wordiness.

14..junkyards, highways. John Hartford's "Gentle on My Mind"

15..The Keno Bros, say a trio.

16..Post-hint to SoCal with In media res.

17..Three of you with T-Mobile; one of you expresses gratitude to the Justice Dept.

18..SoCal only thinks he's figured me out. OK, this time he has...Roberta Flack.

19..Have you forgotten Hurricane Carol? Then you may have made the same dumb mistakes when Irene came along.

20..K9 fingers her as a Jack-the-Ripper victim, actually the first known one.

21..VAUC realizes they both had long term partners named "Shriver".

22..Yes to Hopalong Cassidy. Both geordi & NCor wanted to grow up to be cowboys, despite what their mamas said.

23..SANTO, along with Johnny, recorded SLEEPWALK. Credit to geordi.

VAUConn questions
24..Codger doesn't like my queries, but comes alive for VAUC...Richie Valens' Donna and La Bamba.

25..NCor alone with Willie Lanier.

I shall now give greater attention to Florida State vs. Oklahoma.
