Sure thing. I was actually leaning towards Bricker to explain human laws, but decided that the aliens would need to know context first. Plus, who wants to talk about laws when meeting aliens for the first time?

"Over the Waves", is a popular waltz used during trapeze shows. Mistakenly thought to be a waltz by Strauss, it was written by Mexican composer Juventino Rosas.

I think this is one that's easier just to go by memory.

Looking in one of the later Straight Dope books (one or both of the 1998-99 ones) has specific mentions of several old-line members. They would've been around back on the AOL board forever ago.
