Some feedback...

Geordi has 2 questions half-right and just one error.

VTC is good for 51/2, but he's the only one that's in the ball park on #21, i.e, the guy parachuted 3000 ft.
from a balloon.

Pap is 2/2.

Codger goes astray only on #7.

Like Pap, Rbny and crown are 2/2.

Four out of 4 for Meyers.

"Pennsylvania" and "blood" are where Fairview goes astray.

I would have liked more clarity on #8, but otherwise zorro is perfect, well, except for Hopalong.

Two of 3 for pinot.

UPink is 4/4.

Throw out his 3 & 8 and NCor's OK.

VAUC is alone with David Niven, but his Seder happens every weekend, and lungs won't work.

Jury is still out on "pinochle", # 2 refers to Simon Bolivar. Mr. Lopez is a direct descendent of Simon's sister.
For #1 see NCor.

Darn, I guessed Pennsylvania figuring Virginia was too easy, since that is where the earthquake occurred. Thinking Pennsylvania may still have Three-Mile Island in the back of its mind, I gave them the nod for being as cautious as possible and closing any nuclear power plants.

Since my earlier hint mentioned "run", I do not know why we had this prolonged discourse, which became a substitute for answering the question. I shall do so now to put an end to all this. A poker player would call it a royal flush.
I thank you, VTC, for your, however reluctant, concession. On to #244 soon.

No more list of answers?

This time I am allowing you to extrapolate the answers from my highlighting each poster's success. It can be done, because you all know the benefits of extra brain work.:p
