MARCH 2017 PUZZLE - "Isn't that Special!"
Submitted by Dave Thomas
A few weeks after the inauguaration of President John F. Kennedy, a math teacher at a small southwestern college told his students that they were living in a very special year. The professor said "The last time this happened, Billy the Kid was being tracked by Pat Garrett. The time before that, Suleiman II ended his reign as sultan of the Ottoman Empire."
The March Bonus: When was (or is) the next time this type of “Special Year” occurred (or will occur)?
