22..Now it looks like crown and I shall lock horns, I'm clearer if I say which don't speak Arabian as a mother tongue.

15...When I typed "Network", I knew someone like Dish would pounce. And all you "likes" are just encouraging him.

24..See, there's just 2 fellas involved, and one just got out of prison.

16..It is a myth that they arrived home in a big yellow taxi. An Englishman would not hear of it.

14..Pinot, Meyers & VAUC have ended their usual squabbling with an Armistice. Pinot is only 1 year off-1954.

16..Waq & Pony with a very, very, very fine response--Graham Nash and Joni Mitchell. Knights still in shock,
so send him cards and letters.

15..While we always issue a (black) plague on both the houses of ND & Tn, ed4 says it applies also to the 14thC.

17..You could say China, or more specifically, Xanadu, as Pinot & Meyers & Coleridge did.

18..Pinot, Meyers & VAUC all heard a pin drop.

19..VAUC writes that it is Japan. China follows us at #2.

20..Gustavo (Guga) Kuerton of Brazil, who for awhile owned the French Open. It's a good sport,
so give it a Waq.

21..Crown starts us off with asparagus. Later entries by VAUC & crown, who recall their Little League
squabbling days, figure it must be a rhubarb.

22..Turks, Kurds & Iranians don't speak Arabic. Pony gave us 1 of 3.

23..1793

24..Mr. Ali fell to Mr. Frazier, shortly following the end of Ali's sentence for conscientious objecting.

25..Pinot & pony give us Scott McKenzie's San Francisco. If you see any Boneyarders festooned with flowers,
it's them.

Taking into account some partial answers, I give you an 80%. It's got a good beat and you can dance to it.

20. Apparently there are two tennis players from South America who have been year-end number one. Gustavo Kuerten for men and four time year-end number one Maria Bueno for women.

You're right. If I were talking men, then I should have typed men.
