I REALLY need help in this Double Shift word problem by Gloria Rosenthal.
The following real or fictional people all "do" or "did" something; their activities are dependent on their names. From each clue, identify the person, take their first name or surname (whichever one wasn't given), and change exactly one letter to discover their activity. All other letters stay where they are, and every answer consists of a two-word phrase. For example, "Franklin wagered" equals BEN BET.
