It is with heavy heart that I apologize for a wrong answer. After over 8000 questions and maybe only 17 MINOR mistakes, I have made a doosey.

In the quiz “Tough and Familiar Trivia” question nine wrongly named Buddy Holly’s plane as ‘American Pie’. This is an urban legend that I fell for. I have changed the question to a well researched fact.

However, I apologize to all who took it and thought they had learned a new fact. This error has prompted a new quiz on ‘Urban Myths’. Anyone reading this message will get at least one right.

Dear Allena

I also have made one mistake in the last 12 months -- when I thought I was wrong but I wasn't.

Indeed if it was not for my excess humility I suspect I would have no faults at all....

Let me add my mea culpa to yours.
On a sports quiz today I had Marvin Harrison's name down as Walter! (where did that come from?) I changed it as soon as I got PMs from the first two eagle-eyed quiz takers. I apologize to all the early birds who took the quiz before I fixed it.

Allena, I made the same mistake you did on one of my quizzes, and another member was kind enough to politely point it out, at which point I, too, fixed it. I think urban legends are a great topic for a quiz. Long live!

Nobody's perfect - all is forgiven. Hopefully nobody was ungracious about it!

I thought "American Pie" was correct. Oh, those urban legends. We get them into our heads and they stick.

Allena, you got me twice....
Got it wrong on the first quiz, and made a mental note that it was called
American Pie. Then I was happy to see the same question on a second quiz
because now I KNEW the answer. Right???? NOT!!!!
I was led astray but I forgive you!!!!
