As a college student, I can use wikipedia as a source. As long as I cite my source. No matter the source, you should always fact check.

wo town guy,

Where do you go to college? I know you don't go to VU - My prof. would kill me if I used Wikipedia.

Question #19 has been thrown out. A test-taker called and claimed it was the Mills Brothers that first recorded the song "Cabdriver" and it looks like they're correct. Everyone gets five free points.
