trivia 10/8

The 1960 presidential election holds the title of the closet presidential race. John F. Kennedy won just a tenth of a percent more popular votes than Richard Nixon, but he did carry a clear majority in the Electoral College with 303 votes, as opposed to Nixon's 219 votes.

Danielle has sold over 800 million books, making her the best-selling female author alive, and the 8th all-time. Steele’s books have spent an amazing 390 – plus weeks on the New York Times Best-Seller list. but she has never solved a real-life murder ; at least none that got reported on.

Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
