And Wallace Bennett, Bob's Daddy, represented Utah in the Senate, and Milton Young did the same for North Dakota.

Definitely clears things up.

Good thing Frank didn't leave any loose ends anywhere. Like, oh, I dunno, his heart. In San Francisco, or something. :)

Thank you as always, Frank!

Glad you enjoyed it, and sorry for that mistake.

I'm actually going to have a new lyrics based game ready to go tomorrow.
