25..Lots of Francos...but no.

24..All the world knows Nixon was prez in 1970. Oy Vey, I'm gonna ask you that? The head of the EPA, if you please.

23..Creative, UPink; if you're telling us that you know that all 4 were his back-up singers or his concubines, then I can only
genuflect to your knowledge, and that NCor was right all along about your singularity.

And Dish, in the 4Non-blondes actual song, can you mention how they actually ask the question?

19..Google crown fox's response. Kinda funny...scary too, if you will.

18..Optically Stimulated L________ Dating

14..And NCor do you yet realize that you were dyslexic (or something) in answering.

23. I am going to assume you are asking for four female singers with whom he recorded duets. If so, right now, I am only coming up with three; Kim Weston, Tammi Terrell, and Diana Ross. for a fourth name, I will toss in the fact that he was once married to Berry Gordy's sister, Anna.
24. President Nixon
25. Franco

In fact I am somewhat dyslexic. It took Upink to realize this and encourage me to get tested.
