    Very, VERY warm. So warm, in fact, that you're almost there, Danno.

    Damn Jeopardy! champion showoff.

    Does it have to do anything with rugby?

    Oooh, sorry, BD. No rugby involvement.

    I'd give the answer, but DanO is about to burn himself, he's so warm with his last guess.

    Disappointed in you, DannO.

    The answer is yes, both lost spouses in airplane crashes... and both were supposed to be on the planes that crashed. Sir Edmond showed up late to his flight and missed it; Liz and her violet eyes were sick with a 102-degree fever and the flu, so the doctor told her to skip the flight.

    It went down over New Mexico, killing all aboard, including Mike Todd.

    Todd's also the only husband she's had that she didn't divorce. Found it odd that she remarried (Eddie Fisher) within 14 months. Good question.

    Would have answered this sooner, but I'm recovering from moving.
    The answer is easy.... a Springsteen concert.

    The line was derived from the classic 1953 western 'Shane' when Shane confronts Chris Calloway (played by Ben Johnson) with, "You speaking to me?" Chris replies, "I don't see nobody else standing there."
