Hi players, I'm here to make some sense of things.

1..One of the company's honchos went off on an anti-semitic rant. He is no more...at least with Dior.

2..K9, VTC & VAUC with Haiti. It was an "official" terror organization.

3..NCor is correct with Croatia.

4..Meyers has Ethel of I Love Lucy, here to be confused with ethyl in your tank.

5..NCor and K9 with Annie.

6..Hundred Years War sends the little duck down to reward Meyers and 3 mates.

7..A courtesy notice when the Prez seeks to appoint someone from the senator's state.

8..NCor correctly choose 200K.

9..The Missouri, aptly say VTC & NCor

10..Dorrit, offers the literary VTC.

11..Meyers and K9 with 3 Kings Day; Meyers also points out we frequently refer to the Epiphany.

12..Hungary

13..Pinot questions whether he is on my wave length. No need, for you have Pink Floyd.

Last half a little later.
