Trivia 9/28

Trivia 9/28
Did you know…

According to the US Census, the least populated county in America is Loving County, TX, with only 52 residents.

1. How many dimples are there on a regulation golf ball?
2. the Mediterranean island of Corsica is part of what country?
3. Clint Eastwood was once elected Mayor of what California town?
4. Name the tv Sci-Fi series that featured villains called "Nestenes".
5. Which character was played by Michael Learned
on the long-running series, "The Waltons"?
6. Who created the creatures known as "Fraggles"?
7. Which two famous cartoon characters perform a piano duet in the movie, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"?
8. When she married Mike Tyson, Robin Givens was a regular on what TV series?
"All the News That's Fit to Print" was the prizewinning slogan in a contest sponsored by the New York Times.
1. 366
3. carmel
4. "DR. WHO"
7. donald duck and daffy duck
8. head of the class
The slogan, which has appeared on the front page of the Times since Feb. 10, 1897, was conceived by the publisher, Adolph S. Ochs. He then offered a $100 prize to anyone who could come up with a better one. The winner was, "All the world news, but not a school for scandal". Not surprisingly, Ochs decided to stay with his own.
