Where is Dr. Michael Swango, and what is he doing right now?

The former Quincy resident and Adams County EMT is in a federal prison in Colorado, serving three life sentences. He became famous after James Stewart wrote the book "Blind Eye" about accusations Swango killed patients under his care. Stewart said circumstantial evidence links Swango to 35 suspicious deaths. The FBI believes he might be responsible for as many as 60 deaths, which would make him one of the most prolific serial killers in American history.

What is the speed limit on the unposted section of the North Bottom Road between Quincy and Ursa? I say it's 65, but my friend says 55.

You lose. The speed limit if not posted on the two-lane road is 55 mph.
