On the Road

We spent all day today on the road, driving between the Colorado mountains and Omaha. You know what’s out there? Not much.

That makes for a pretty long day, so instead of commentary I’ll offer a puzzle. This was a crossword  included in an issue of The Owl from the fall of 1938 and it’s full of truly trivial Rice trivia:

Bonus: Seasons Greetings from Norton, Kansas!

      I believe that’s the price for a ‘jacket’ only.
      A suit should have cost about $35, or the price of an ounce of gold.

      (And we’re still waiting for an explanation of your attire in that pic.)

    More importantly, did you see any courthouses on your drive?

      Hopefully, you’re asking from the tourist point of view.
      NOT from an accused point of view.

    You’re about six months early to be going to Omaha.
