21. One reason is that ISIS held some Turkish hostages that it said it would execute if Turkey entered the fight. There may be other reasons as well.
24. One was James Traficant, who died a few days ago, and the other was a guy named Myers (I don't remember his first name).

22..Geordi has the latest case of right church, wrong pew. Kind of literal in this instance. The Agnus Dei (qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere.
nobis.) has long been a prayer in the Mass. We'll keep the Dei, but we yet need the correct preceding word.

OK. What was the name of the Jesuit (I think) order that flagellate themselves that was featured in Angels and Demons? It was something Dei...

14..Geordi picks Blake Bortles out of UCF, to Jax with the 3rd pick.

15..India, it's a Hindu holiday.

16..The late Brian Piccolo, played by James Caan. Meyers leads the quartet.

17..Jimi Hendrix

18..1914...some of you well surrounded it.

19..Pinot, Pony & JR give us Sir Francis Drake, maker of devil dogs.

20..K9 scores with Sandra Brown.

21..Rbny has a valid point; JR mentions Kurds, but his wording is too cryptic. Turkey has a restless Kurdish population,
so the gov't is wary of doing anything that might strengthen the Kurds.
Now, VAUC, you seem to be saying that Turkey fears significant instability within. That may be overstating things..

22..The Opus Dei is a mixed blend of clergy and laity, conservative and somewhat secretive. Ine is helpful here.

23..The Pony foursome name Led Zeppelin.

24..Rbny offers Traficant, expelled for bribery, extortion et al. and Myers, caught up in the Abscam scandal.
Adam Clayton Powell was excluded by his fellow democrats, but for some reason that is not considered an
expulsion. Anyway Adam later got back in by his constituents.

25..Meyers & geordi provide Clayton Kershaw.

You missed on Jimi Hendrix and India, so we'll think of this as one of your better efforts.
