Start thinking about that just a bit and you can really see a list start to grow of things with three members, three parts, three words, et cetera. Editor Don Whitten makes out his list, from TV networks to musical groups to sports connections, and then wonders if readers might have a few more to add. (March 7, 2011, Page 4A)
