Re: Monday, October 22, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This was one of the best-written FJ! clues in recent memory. The TOMs were all around, but you had to be paying attention and piece them together. What is a) a place mentioned particularly in recent news, b) that would be significant as a warm-weather presidential retreat, c) but would be privately...
