Trivia Corner: Sharp Shooting...

Congratulations to Mark Huang and Ewa Dominowska who both knew that the ironic last words "Why are you dodging? They couldn't hit an elephant at this dist-" were spoken by Union General John B. Sedgwick as he berated his troops for taking cover from enemy fire. They each win a pair of tickets, two sodas and large tub of popcorn, all courteousy of LSC.

The Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen was reknown for his vehement disagreement with conventional ideas, a trait he retained to the end. After becoming an invalid due to a stroke, when his nurse suggested his condition was improving, he snapped, "On the contrary!" and promptly died.

Prizes are provided by LSC. Showing this weekend:
