    Excellent - thanks! I remember the agents in The Untouchables often mentioning about the Volstead Act. Don't know anything about the man, though. Let's see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Volstead

    The aircraft carrier is the USS Carl Vinson, named after this long-serving Congressman: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Vinson

    I'll start the next round tomorrow.

    No mention of it in either of their Wiki bios. Carl was born in Georgia, while Fred was born in Kentucky; no relation, I think.
