Multiple Choice Exam to Restore Sanity and/or Fear

Lindsay Sidders Hodgins is from Edmonton and is currently a PhD student at the University of Toronto (but don’t hold that against her). She is also the Rally Correspondent for The Past Is Unwritten, and as such she went trippin’ on down to The Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear held this past weekend in Washington, D.C.

I sat down with Lindsay in Internetland to ask her about her experience at the rally. I then took that interview and turned it into a multiple choice exam.  You’ve been to the rally/watched it online. You’ve read about the rally on Fox News/Al Jazeera. Now take the test.

Hint: A/C/D/C  is NOT the pattern the answers follow. And answering all Cs will NOT give you a passing grade.
