10K: guess correctly

The reason for correct guess is that Pony Express is only choice where man's weight matters, & Q is low enough amount that logic might matter.

Also: 1st user of telegraph was Marconi or his assistant, whose name I admit I don't know, why would there be a train with only one passenger, & Ft. Sumpter was fired on by a group. Date is probably wrong for Sumpter, too, but right for Pony Express.

This season has had plenty of Jeopardy alumni as players so far, I think with more coming.
