  • On your Thanksgiving quiz one of the questions incorrectly lists Benjamin Franklin as being a former president!

    • Daven Hiskey

      @Ken: Ha! In Noreen’s defense, she was not born or raised in the United States (though lives here now) and there are a large percentage of Americans who think he was, probably owing to things like that he is on the $100 bill and he’s considered one of the founding fathers, many of the most prominent of which did go on to be President. 🙂 Even despite this lack of focussing on American History, I’d say Noreen probably knows more about the U.S. than most Americans, but nobody bats 1000. 🙂 Anyways, fixed the wording; thanks for catching it!
