    1. Mark Twain
    2. Bright Eyes. I assure you I would have had no idea if I hadn’t been reading of her death in the paper about 10 minutes ago.
    3. They each have one occurence of each of the vowels. Thanks to question 4 which gave me the idea.
    4. ????????
    5. This one is really true. “The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money”. John Maynard Keynes. I read it every 5 years or so, not for the economics but for the wonderful writing. The last couple of days happened to be the time.
