    • HOOVER DAM - PART I: GOOF: John Daly was incorrect: Hoover Dam is located in Boulder City, Nevada, which is 35 miles from Las Vegas. The dam is not near Boulder, Colorado, the home of the first guest. The two cities are 800 miles apart. - Suzanne (2005)

      HOOVER DAM - PART II: Though it was known as Hoover Dam both in the early years of construction in the early 1930's, as well as at the time of tonight's show and beyond, upon the 1932 Presidential election defeat of its namesake, Herbert Hoover, his successor, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, made it a priority to change the dam's name to what had been originally intended, Boulder Dam (after its base of Boulder City, Nevada). In later years, during the controversy of whether or not to restore Herbert Hoover's name to the dam, legendary NBC News anchor and commentator David Brinkley suggested that the former President settle the matter by changing his name to "Herbert Boulder." - W-B (2008)
