    Went to school with the nuns in Weaver Square in the 1950’s. Sister Rose was beautiful. However, the pigs being trafficked into Donnelly’s next door were always distraught!

    There ain’t no such place as Rialto Venice, The Rialto Bridge is in Venice, it is not an area. So much for the quizmaster’s knowing the correct answers. Yikes!
