trivia 1/9

C-SPAN: It stands for Cable Satellite Public Affairs Network. C-SPAN broadcasts
mostly House of Representatives and Senate sessions.

The Phrase "The Buck Stops Here" grew out of "passing the Buck" which was an old

The term, which President Truman later turned into a campaign slogan, refers to the
action a poker dealer would take after dealing a hand. A "Buck" referred to a knife or
other weapon that the dealer literally passed to the player beside him. (In case he should
be tempted to cheat, I guess)

“Bad men need nothing more to accomplish their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.”
