Re: TD 399 -- Halloween-ish Quiz - FINAL SCORES

Count Chocula was a singleton, and was one of the last entries, too. The negbait was the Kosciusko/Pulaski option. I hadn't known there was also a Pulaski Mountain before this TD, so accepted both.

SINGLETON, but wrong letter - 3

E. John Quincy Adams (he's actually C.)

Does the fact that I believed each Adams held the opposite listed nickname worsen my score at all?

cmp146 sported a pretty gaudy DE score, too. Such a bummer. I look forward to seeing you again in LL80.
