Great quiz. Your clues were right on. I think it would be better without the yellow box, though. Also, Roosevelt didn't work for the first lady.
Level 83
Jun 25, 2013
Roosevelt changed. I thought using the yellow box would force people to use the clues and prevent them from just listing possible names without reference to the clues.

Roosevelt still not working; neither is Martin Luther King without the Jr.
