"A man, a plan, a canal - Panama"
Readers who are particularly interested in wordplay might also enjoy a fantastical discussion, set to music, on the development of this famous palindrome by Leigh Mercer, in post #185 of our lyrics blog (SILLY SONGS and SATIRE)  ...
"Leigh Mercer's Palindrome Workshop" 



rêve = French for dream.
Tulsa, Oklahoma: a stop on U.S. Route 66, as mentioned in the eponymic jazz ballad.
Amana Colonies: a religious community, the Pietists, founded this settlement in the state of Iowa in 1856.
panama (Ecuadorian hat): a traditional brimmed straw hat of Ecuadorian origin, becoming popular worldwide at the beginning of the 20th century.
BNA Act: The British North America Act paved the way for the  Confederation of Canada in 1867.
