Running back, now


Last hour's trivia answer:  Byron Raymond "Whizzer" White (b. 1917, d. 2002) was born in Ft. Collins, a football star at the University of Colorado, a Rhodes Scholar, and he played for Pittsburgh and Detroit. Led the league for rushing in 1938 and 1940.

So why did he spend so much time in court?

Yale Law School. Denver attorney. Chaired the elect-JFK campaign in Colorado. Appointed Deputy Attorney General, one step below Bobbie Kennedy. Appointed to the Supreme Court by JFK in 1962. That's why. ;-)

This hour's trivia question:  Oops! I forgot which category was coming up! Okay, ummm, how far is it from the populated place where Mork landed from Ork and settled in, to the operations center where NORAD (the North American Air Defense Command) tracked objects leaving, orbiting, and coming back to earth?

Winner will be the closest valid answer - answers have to be within 10% of the correct distance to be valid. The "correct answer" will be calculated from the U.S. Geological Survey's latitude and longitude coordinates using the U.S. Geodetic Survey's online calculator.

Next hour's trivia category:  I don't know yet. Gotta think about it. :-)
