    The category is People.

    Why is Walter Lines notable?

    PM your initial guesses by Thursday, 4/24 by 7:00 AM EST.

    Just as a reminder, please don't use the Net or other sources to get the "answer". This is all in fun and should be done off the top of your head (besides, you get to see wacky answers). You get one point for providing a guess here, so it is in your best interest to provide a guess rather than wait until the final list comes out.

    Okay, we had a very good turn out so far. Keep it up! This is the initial list: PM me with what you think is the right answer by Monday, 4/28 by 7:00 AM EST (actually, that's not in stone because my work is moving my area this weekend and I'll have to see if my computer is set up in its new place and still works :) )
