Correct on #2. The paleontologist was Othniel Charles Marsh, and the current Earl of Airlie is David Ogilvy. (Son of, incidentally, David Ogilvy, grandson of David Ogilvy, and great-grandson of David Ogilvy. Apparently, when they find a name they like, the Ogilvys stick with it.)


IQ1: Were you a Civil War veteran who served as a justice on the Supreme Court, son of a noted poet of the same name?

IQ2: Did you hack into Pravda to change a headline to “Gorbachev sings tractors! Turnip! Buttocks!”, causing Casper Weinberger to look “noticeably shaken”?

IQ3: Did you write a series of novels – in truth, one long novel, broken up into many – about a English sea captain and his closest friend, an Irish-Catalan physician and spy?



DQ1: American?

DQ2: Born after 1925?

Two DQs, I'm afraid; you were correct on Oliver Wendell Holmes, but #2 was a different Bloom County character - Oliver Wendell Jones. #3 was Patrick O'Brian, whose Aubrey-Maturin novels I can recommend unhesitatingly.

IQ1: Did you claim that God told you you’d die if you couldn’t raise $8,000,000.00 by the end of the month?

IQ2: Were you a Cy Young-, NLCS-, and World Series MVP-winning pitcher with the Dodgers, who joked that if you were a wrestler, your persona would be “The Mad Librarian”?

IQ3: Were you a sober bicycle manufacturer from Dayton, Ohio, who achieved fame in the Outer Banks of North Carolina?



DQ1: British?

DQ2: Known for the arts?
