public class Exercise13 {

   public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        String columnist1 = "Stephen Edwin King";
        String columnist2 = "Walter Winchell";
        String columnist3 = "Mike Royko";

        // Are any of the above Strings equal to one another?
        boolean equals1 = columnist1.equals(columnist2);
        boolean equals2 = columnist1.equals(columnist3);

        // Display the results of the equality checks.
        System.out.println("\"" + columnist1 + "\" equals \"" +
            columnist2 + "\"? " + equals1);
