    16..Verifiied the predicted existence of Neptune

    18..The language that help win WWII, Navajo.

    20..A person can be proud of say their accomplishments as in great satisfaction but not to the extent their pride becomes conceit. Parental pride is fine but not so much when it becomes excessive and becomes demeaning of other children.

    24.. Rasputin

    25..Pete Conrad

    19. That sounds like something John C. Calhoun would do.

    20..The only thing I can come up with is that pride is a good thing (taking pride in ones work) but at the same time a deadly sin.

    22..Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

    23..Latter Day Saints (Mormons)

    14..It's 700, now look, don't forget it.

    15..Knights is not doubting Thomas.

    16..I'll go out on a limb and predict the existence of SVC.

    17..Rbny & Big double dating at the drive-in.

    18..SVC is correct. Now, don't swoon, for he leaves lots of answers undone.

    19..And Calhoun says, if ed4's such a smarty pants , let's see him handle Andrew Jackson.

    20..Some further notes...often "ego" is used as synonym. Freud posited that the ego is the rational part of humans,
    keeping the id and superego in check. A strong ego implies self satisfaction and pride in one's being. In common parlance
    too much ego makes one prideful, lacking in openness and transparency. Not a compliment.
    I do wonder about SVC's example of parental pride, for it sounds like a reflection of personal experience, though not necessarily his.

    21..K9 alone here. Can anyone ID the group?

    22..K9, SVC and Big show their literary chops.

    23..Big and Knights will, alas, eventually pass. I have it on good authority that they want that circumstance hidden from
    the Mormons.

    24..The answer panel is just loaded with Rasputins.

    25..Yup, poor Pete was safer on the moon.
