  4. Nope and nope . . . sorry. Yesterday's answer: Orson Welles sawed Marlene Dietrich in half in the 1944 film FOLLOW THE BOYS. (Afterward, he was fond of saying he kept the better half for himself -- but he didn't say which half!) That does it for this week -- see you all on Monday!

  14. Greetings, everybody! It's the first day of spring, and the Queen City is facing a winter storm warning. Three to five inches of snow later tonight.
