8 . Who am I :
In 1995, a TV Guide survey finds that I'm still the most trusted media personality........ more than a decade after I retired from the CBS anchor desk...

The "Coney Island" hot dog was introduced in Cincinnati, Ohio.
1. "Beneath...", "Escape From.....", "Conquest of....", and "Battle for...."
(Bonus; "Return to ....")
2. Pleasure Island

4. Hamlet
5. Johnny Weissmuller
6. Green
7. Samuel

This is a specialty from Cincinnati and is often called a 'Coney.' The history is somewhat vague, but a Macedonian immigrant, Tom Athanas Kiradjieff gets the credit for this, also. En route to Cincinnati, he passed through the Coney Island area of New York. Later when he decided to cover one of his hot dogs on a bun with mustard, Cincinnati Chili, and onions, and top it all off with a lot of finely grated Cheddar Cheese, he named it a 'Coney Island' and the name sticks to this day. 'Coneys', as the locals call them, are now made with a hot dog that is a bit smaller and shorter than a regular wiener, to allow more room for the chili and other goodies that go thereon.
