I know of exactly 1 Tom Wolfe book, so that was no help. I just FF'd through the Think music and -- in the spirit of Yoda's words -- did not.
As do I, and I knew that he didn't write I Am Charlotte Simmons
in 1970. Ended up on "omega" with near certainty of its being incorrect. When Cindy's response appeared on the screen I beamed, knowing she had it.
I was surprised to see the newspapers category pass without the inclusion of New Orleans's paper; after the $800, I was expecting it to be the bottom row clue.

"50/50/90, it's 'My Heart Will Go On' or 'The Power of Love'... they can't be going THAT deep in the first round." Indeed, they were.

I take no issue with Cindy's phrasing, as it recalls to me some recent greats of the game eschewing the phrase "true Daily Double." For example, FireAntsDefense: "I'll wager the maximum," and on multiple occasions, omgwheelhouse: "let's bet it all."
When this story first broke, I wrote a comment on TFW's Facebook page: "I can't wait to watch her play our beloved game the same way I'm sure she fought cancer - with fervor and passion, right through to the very end." She has done that, and then some. It's been especially wonderful to see praise like that which teapot37 offered up the thread, and the words of the One True Grand Master himself
. Whether this ends tomorrow or she reigns into 2017, Cindy Stowell has earned a special place among even the elite club of five-game champions.
