4. Clam. For unknown reasons, Johnny Bench comes to mind.
6. Sagittarius
8. clam. My guess would be s for strong, but htat's all it is.
10. Cotton Mather (a leap of faith here).

3. Marconi? For 3 points, it shouldn't be someone obscure like Zworykin.
6. Alexandria. Saw it on TV.
9. Predator
12. Clam. Can think of many possible terms (fully automated, self-directed; none seems right.
15. Clam. I'm thinking technocracy, since the krat- stem means rule in Greek. And isn't it Wiener?

Hello JBoard folks. This is Sue, --Pete's wife. --Pete is going to be in the hospital for awhile and will not be able to score this until he gets back home. He is not sure how long he will be off line so, he wanted me to be sure you know that if he is away for too long it is OK with him if someone else does this.

Thank you,

Sue
