Re: Grant’s Tomb

Derb – Oh maybe you didn’t know, but Groucho Marx used to ask contestants “Who’s buried in Grant’s tomb?” and they’d be flummoxed. I’m pretty sure they asked the same question on Jeopardy! once and two of the guests didn’t get it then either. It’s a trick question. Of course Grant is buried in Grant’s tomb. But in the case of Chiang, apparently he really isn’t buried in his tomb.
