Trivia 3/13

1. who chronicled his rookie year in a book called, "driver #8"?
2. name the actress who played a demon-possessed child in "the exorcist".
3. what year was daylight savings time made a national observance?
4. in the 1970's, which citizen was more likely to be a crime victim, a new yorker or chicagoan?
5. which political action group backed the failed E.R.A. ?
6. can you name james arness' actor brother?
herds of lemmings commit mass suicide each year by throwing themselves off cliffs and into the sea.
3. 1966 (1959??)
5. N.O.W.
the myth has been around for hundreds of years, but in 1958 it really took root when the walt disney company produced "white wilderness", showing lemmings jumping into the ocean to their deaths.
it turns out, however, that the documentary had been faked.
though there is still debate over why lemming populations fluctuate so dramatically, consensus is that predators, not suicide, thin out the herds.

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