STRAITS
RQ 10. Baffin Island?
{I just want to say, I don't feel right getting the 10 pts for giving the incorrect answer of Messina, even though that's the answer DoT intended. And I definitely think Corfu should get credit...it's a better fit than Messina is. Thanks for listening.}

SACRED TEXTS
2. the Qu'ran
4. The Book of Mormon? {Really? Reformed Egyptian??}
6. the Septuagint?
8. Vedas {though I've seen it spelled Rg with I think a circle over the R or something}
10. Zoroastrianism? {Ahura Mazda...zoom, zoom}

MUSIC MEN
3. Fantasia
6. John Williams?
9. Pinchas Zuckerman??? {Sounds verrry vaguely familiar}
12. The New York Philharmonic?
15. The CLAM March {assuming it's military-related, but can't come up with a specific org name}
Thanks for keeping the SHC going!
