impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be
the answer. I, however, do not like to eliminate the impossible.
The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it that the merely improbable lacks."

There's a town in Texas, near Austin, called Tow, pronounced "tau" (rhymes with Mao). So add "tow" and "Tow" to the list.
