“No man in this country is so high that he is above the law.” Great words by the U.S. Supreme Court indeed, but only 13 percent of last week’s quiz takers knew that the sentence came from U.S. v. Lee, an 1882 case over Robert E. Lee’s property being appropriated by the United States for what is now Arlington National Cemetery.

On the other end of the spectrum, 85 percent knew that a trademark battle involving the unusual spelling of a naughty word, “FUCT,” involved a clothing brand.
