Gah, guess I misunderstood the last two questions!! 🙁
I missed questions 3 & 4, both with educated guesses.
On 3, I reasoned that the publisher couldn’t have removed any mention of Rosa Parks’ race, or of segregation, because then what would be left of the story? “Woman refuses when ordered by crazy bus driver to give up her seat for other passengers.”
Yet I gather from the answer that they did indeed remove those mentions — and then put them back in.
On 4, I was simply wrong. Wishful thinking, I suppose.
Overall, 5 out of 7: “Not Good, Not terrible.” 🙂
