Re: Friday, June 12, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Oh, Alex...I have a feeling Oprah has praised other women authors in the 6 years since Maya Angelou passed - maybe even other ladies who've died besides Toni Morrison... :roll: Oprah has championed many writers in her career, but I think the stronger link that we were supposed to remember, and to w...

I followed Steve's (presumed) logic: mold --> penicllin --> Fleming. (And was impressed he included the first name.)

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

CLASSIC TV ACTORS On his death in 1982 this actor was buried with full police honors in Los Angeles and LAPD badge No. 714 was retired. Who is Jack Webb? Perhaps easier for older generations. Webb has only one mention in the J-archive in the last 8 years and his last as the correct response was in 2...

I'm in the Othello crowd along with Xiaoke - wrong side of Northern Italy, with Venice vs Genoa. I'm glad you mentioned this because I'd always assumed Othello was set in Spain because that's the country I associate with the Moors. I'll have to try to keep this fact filed away. Me too. On Xiaoke's ...

This was certainly harder than the first two but not super-difficult. But if you don’t make the connection with grandma’s name you’re sunk. I did waste some time trying to make sense of her name being spelled backwards. However, given her book’s popularity in high school English, it would be a fine...

I was off by about 150 years, said John Peter Zenger. The quote itself seemed to be of no help.

I would have been in trouble as an NBA fan/Kansas alumnus had I missed The Process, but what confused me was the Kansas City Royals' rebuilding process over the early part of this decade was called the exact same thing. The team's GM once said "trust the process" at a press conference, and this phr...

He's back! Iain Armitage presented a clue.
Did they kidnap that kid? How many freaking clues did they record? :lol:
12 so far according to the archive. Feels like a lot more.

Alex is normally good with accents, but his Massachusetts one ("pahk your cah") wouldn't fool anyone.

For Arizona's state firearm I said "six-shooter." According to Wikipedia, it's actually a Colt Single Action Army revolver with "a revolving cylinder holding six metallic cartridges."

Random question but did anybody know what the lapel pin that was wearing was for? You just don't see many on the show wearing them.
I believe it was for Donate Life America (organ donation).
