While reviewing questions to prepare my daughter for a test, I noticed she had drawn a large light bulb next to her notes on our 23rd president. "Why did you draw a light bulb next to his description?" I asked. She smiled and explained that he was the first president to use electricity in the White House. According to some accounts, many of the lights stayed on all night because this president was afraid he would get hurt when he turned them off. Isn't that a switch? Today we're afraid to turn the lights on because it's too painful ... for our pocketbooks at least.

If you're a lover of trivia, Brain Games might be your March Madness. The 12th annual Brain Games trivia competition will be held today at Shepherd University. You can still register a team today to participate. But if you'd rather be challenged in the comfort of your own home, here's a short Brain Games-esque quiz. 1. Which country won the most medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics? 2. Who is New York's current governor? 3. Who won the 2008 NCAA Men's Division 1 Basketball Tournament?

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va.-- It turns out that the winners of Sunday's Brain Games competition were a brainy bunch in more ways than one. The six-person team that won the annual academic competition at Shepherd University are members of Mensa, an organization that allows for the exchange of intellectual ideas through lectures, discussions and journals. Greg Fisher recalled how someone with the Frederick, Md., chapter of Mensa asked if anyone in the group wanted to form a Brain Games team.
