Quiz Description

The genial quizmaster of Trebekistan has been in the news lately so let us all send our love, respect and best wishes through this quiz... a quiz with a twist! When the quiz is graded and tabulated, I will add up all the scores, pledge a penny a point and donate half the money to the the same charity TheJeopardyFan.com will donate their money (pending confirmation from Trebek himself) from the T-Shirt sales (when determined) and the other half to the National PanCan Action Network (www.pancan.org) so naturally, the more people who take part, the more money raised.
