Trivia Minute Update: May 1, 2017

Our T-shirt giveaway came to an end on Sunday. We only had one entry from Doug Barbeau, who wins a Trivia Minute T-Shirt. Thanks, Doug.

We’ll start off with a question: Which two of the contiguous 48 states are not served by Amtrak rail service?

Today is Constitution Day in Argentina, Latvia and the Marshall Islands. It’s International Workers’ Day, and it’s May Day.

It’s unofficially Frequent Flyer Day, National Chocolate Parfait Day, and School Principals’ Day.

It’s the birthday of author Joseph Heller, who was born in 1923; musician Judy Collins, who is 78; and film director Wes Anderson, who is 48.

Now, we’ll spin the wheel to pick a year at random.

This week in 1979, the top song in the U.S. was “Reunited” by Peaches and Herb.

The No. 1 movie was “Manhattan,” while the novel “The Matarese Circle” by Robert Ludlum topped the New York Times Bestsellers list.

Weekly question: What is the official name of Amtrak?

Submit your answer at triviapeople.com/test and we’ll add the name of the person with the first correct answer to our winner’s wall … at triviapeople.com. We’ll have the correct answer on Friday’s episode.
