Re: TD 443 - Hoops... (Q1-Q5 revealed)

Lol me with the typo for Q3 (EO instead of FO). And it would’ve aced too!

No guess for Wednesday. Eisenhower on Friday.

I had "Allende" but couldn't pull the first name in time. Judges?

Do I need a first name to distinguish her from her father, even though he wasn't a writer?
I can’t see why, since the category was Women Authors.

Guessed Hillary after ruling out Rice (wouldn’t have written an autobiography while still SoS) and Albright (wouldn’t have had 9/11 as a momentous event while not in office?). In the end it didn’t matter, NHO the actual answer and I’m super impressed with anyone who got it. Hardest non—tournament FJ...

Negged with revise for redact. Couldn’t think what the date referred to.

I’m wondering what’s going to happen to the auditions. I’m very skeptical that they’ll go as planned at this point.

Re: FJs for the 2/17/20 week

I'm in the Broadway theatre district all the time (though in the theatres themselves much less often). So I know for example that there is now a new show in the former "Waitress" theatre with a short title and a purple sign. That show is the already-predicted-as-a-future-J!-clue musical about the w...
