— Ace I got most of them right, although I did have a brainfart when I answered that Leon Klinghoffer had been murdered not by "male Muslim extremists between the ages of 17 and 40," but by Dr. Charles Drew, who first separated plasma from whole blood.
Not sure how I blew that one. I guess I just never trusted the guy. I remember one time in third grade when I was asked who he was and I said "Dr. Charles Drew is a cryptofascist subversive and sexual deviant who'll be the first one with his back against the wall when Jim Morrison rises from the dead to lead the New Revolution."*
I ended up in Special Ed for three weeks making construction-paper puppets of Cookie Monster. Best three weeks of my whole life.
* Joke lifted from an old friend, but he probably stole it himself, so the hell with him.
More Seriously: Paul Sperry points out the bleedin' obvious in a NYT editorial.
It is not your fault of course, but rather Reagan's for not caring enough for our children to stop the Real Corporate food monsters from perverting your natural tastes for veggie burgers into something evil!
Lucky for the Children of Today that the brave PBS workers are struggling to prevent more little children being lost to the Facists....(or is the Fatists?)

Veteran wire reporter Helen Thomas is vowing to 'kill herself' if Dick Cheney announces he is running for president.
C'mon Dick, take one for the team, eh?

Once an Islamist suicide bomber is sitting next to you on the train, your chances of escape are slim. The only solution is for the police to stop him well before he boards your car.
I disagree. One possible "solution" involves shoving a sharp implement in said bomber's eye, and keep shoving until he stops twitching.
There may be others.

b. Jay Lenno
c. Harry Potter
d. Muslim male extremist between the ages of 17 and 40
The answer is neither. Sirhan Sirhan was a Christian "Palestinian". He wasn't interested in Islamism (although he was exposed to a lot of it in school), he was more into pan-Arabism. Nasser was his hero.

Now that's just plain silly. Everyone knows that Jim Morrison is hanging out with Elvis and some nearly naked Indian...er...Native American guy on Mars. We'ld have more sightings of him, but he just doesn't like to wait in line at the Burger King in Bucksnort, TN. That, and everyone thinks he looks a lot look Val Kilmer for some reason.

It was the Syrius Cybernetics Corp. in the book, right?

More specifically, it was the marketing execs of the Sirius Cybernetics Corp, I believe.
