19TH CENTURY LITERATURE – Its first line says, “The good people of Paris were awakened by a grand peal from all the bells in the three districts of the city”

Odds and Ends

Triple Stumper of the day: No one knew play character famous for “STELLA!” is Stanley Kowalski.

Ken’s Korner: He said he didn’t know what’s the plural of “mongoose” between “mongooses” and “mongeese”. While “mongooses” is the most common, both are acceptable.

One more thing: For those wondering who the correct response to DD3 is, it’s a band that has released four studio albums beginning in 2013. They’ve had a number of songs on the U.S. rock chart, but nothing on the Hot 100 that reached above no. 80.

Correct Qs: DD1 – Who is Ophelia? DD2 – What is Tuscany? DD3 – Who is The 1975? FJ – What is “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”?
