As dayowlron is leaving us hanging...

Won the race but he had died during it?

You win, but, did you google that? I mean... who knows that?

Here's an interesting fact from the outcome of the race:

"Reports at the time said track doctor John A. Voorhees rushed over to examine Hayes but pronounced him dead immediately and said he had suffered a heart attack."

A certain J.Voorhees "examined" him, eh?

Well, no wonder he died!

Over to morganw I think...

sorry been busy with life and forgot i had that posted, but as Mandle said that is correct.
Pro is the opposite of Con                       Kids of today are so much different
This fact can clearly be seen,                  Don't you know?
If progress means to move forward         Just ask them where they are from
Then what does congress mean?             And they tell you where you can go.  --Nipsey Russell

It was just a guess... My world history knowledge isn't too great so I had to search for new question. I hope this one is OK (and correct).
In 1980, who was given the 'key to the city' of Detroit for having donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to a local church?

No idea. Maybe some band from Detroit? Or perhaps someone random like Donald Trump? Or Michael Moore?

No, it's something denied only by people who don't understand it. Once you understand it, it's so obviously correct, like the answer to a good riddle: You don't even have to ask if your answer was right.
