1..Meyers(who added the "e" to his handle, so to distinguish himself from the Boogyman and to prevent the
hordes coming to his house), pony & K9.

2..It's "Twilight" by a glitter band(?) of the 70's.

3..Crown remembers that Martin Luther made a fuss.

4..Credit pony for the contribution of the Immigration Act, with its literacy requirement and quotas. That slowed down the millions who
had come before. What I had in mind was an Act that attacked the personal lives of many citizens. What say ye?

5.."The Days That Used to Be" by the sometimes "end" of CSN.

6..Geordi strikes with "Macedonian".

7..The same lad provides John Steinbeck. BTW, what's John's link to Henry Fonda?

8..Milano, providing a circus for the curious. Pony & geordi.

9..K9 identifies a Reagan kid (though she went by "Davis") who at 41 appeared in her birthday suit. Pony mentions the Reagan family also.

10..You need to ask Duane Eddy.

11..Aaron refused to put an "e" in his name, despite zorro and Meyers' entreaties. Rbny 's correct spelling
sets up a confusion with the COP LAND flic, starring Stallone & a host of biggies.

12..Rbny & pony are correct with Palme.

13..The Lions are totally ignorant of the Superbowl experience, though Bobby Layne did lead them to the NFL
championship in the '50's. Pony & K9, reaching way back.
