Larry Bird is my all-time favorite NBA player, so that was a gimme, thanks to him.

Re: 2022 Current Events Study Guide

David Ortiz, DH for the Boston Red Sox, is the only new entrant into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and Curt Schilling fail to make it in on their 10th and final time.

I think I knew RADAR was an acronym, but I didn't recall what it stood for. I'd be in a similar pickle with SONAR. If SCUBA comes up, I'm good. Although Ken said it was "radio detecting ...", but it's "radio detection ..." (and sonar -- no caps any more -- is "sound navigat...

Re: 2022 Current Events Discussion Thread

Mattel has released a Barbie doll honoring crusading journalist and suffragist Ida B. Wells . Wells has one archive hit from November 4, 2021. I'm holding out for the Gloria Steinem Barbie. I feel that's when we'll have reached peak irony. Well, she was famously a Playboy bunny. Sure, but that was ...

I don't blame them one bit.

Good article and the archive gets yet another mention.

I saw 1949 and thought, well, Hawaii wasn't a state yet, so maybe they're trying to steer us away.

I _think_ I said Chadwick Boseman? Thanks, I'll got with that and if it's someone different I'm sure a correction suggestion will pop up.
