These are two of my favorite trick questions. Answer either question but I need a complete answer to each.

1. Name the northernmost, southernmost, easternmost and westernmost states of the US.

2. Who is buried in Grant's tomb.

Hint: I was coy in how I responded to Doreen because I was hoping someone would take the bait to say the late President Grant and his wife are buried there. In fact, this is not correct either.

Alaska is clearly the northernmost but it's also the westernmost by way of the Aleutian Islands. It goes so far west that it crosses the line and becomes the easternmost, too.

Hawaii is the southernmost. smile

Well done Pandora! The easternmost is the tricky one.

Doreen, that is not my answer.

They are not buried. They are in some kind of above ground container.???

That's it Curly! They are in a mausoleum above ground.

Thanks for playing!
