Good quiz! I kept reading "River on Tennessee's western border" as eastern. Couldn't figure out why Cumberland wasn't correct.

No, the phrase "grand ole opry" was coined in response to criticism about their music following a program of classical music and grand opera. The announcer said the listeners may have heard grand opera in the previous program but they were about to hear grand ole opry.

Smokey Bear, the mascot owned by the US Forest Service and the Ad Council, is properly spelled "Smokey" (with an E). Smoky, meaning filled with, or smelling of, smoke - is spelled without an E.

The Rural Electrification Administration (REA), which was part of the Department of Agriculture, wster actually the only "federal" agency whose employees worked to provide electric power across US rural areas. REA, now RUS, provided public electric cooperatives with low-interest loans to these coops so most everyone could have electricity. This was all part of FDR'S New Deal, which provided jobs and helped bring the US out of the Great Depression.
