Missed bill of health and said bill of lading.
There is such a thing as a clean bill of lading, it just has nothing to do with being medically cleared.

Yes, according to the National Archives. They call the document of September 1862 the "Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation." https://www.archives.gov/exhibits/featured-documents/emancipation-proclamation#:~:text=President%20Abraham%20Lincoln%20issued%20the,and%20henceforward%20shall%20be%20free.%...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I agreed with the ranking all the way through to 2 (I rate the person ranked 1 in the bottom 3). Odd how the writer manages to rank Guthrie when we've only seen two days of her hosting. I mostly agree with your ranking, although I put Rodgers ahead of Cooper and Ken just barely ahead of Buzzy. Mike...

Re: Tuesday, June 15, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I wonder if they would have taken "Jackie O"? It's a better answer than 'Jackie Kennedy'. As far as correctness goes, it's an identical answer (just like Jackie Bouvier). Was the Emanciptation Proclamation 'issued' on Jan 1? That's when it became law, but I'd say it was first issued back in Septemb...

Savannah Guthrie's already tall. A few years ago, she was on a flight I was on. I thought it was an impressive debut.
What was she debuting as, the pilot? :)

Re: Monday, June 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Whisky was begging for a verbal BMS rather than an extended pause... I don't think they should ever give a verbal BMS. Let the contestant figure it out ... or not. It's like in baseball when the runner slides in and misses home plate. The umpire just stands there -- no signal at all. It's up to the...

Sounded like she said “doctorate” rather than doctrine. But I am in a hotel and have no way to rewatch it.
Nope, she said "Doctrine".
I matched Caitlin’s response. I figured that was wrong because I didn’t think they’d ask players something difficult to spell.
I, too, said laissez-faire.

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I made a really dumb mistake on the Close Encounters of the Third Kind question. The correct answer was my first instinct, but then I second guessed myself with Contact . I thought that Contact may have been a more recent film (I am not a movie person, especially when it comes to sci-fi), but to me...

If 30% of the league knew it then the other 60% could have been guessing 50/50 between the two, seems pretty reasonable.
I definitely flipped the Koin.

Sotomayor/Souter here, which is at least alliterative.
That was my guess, too.

I also had Monument Station instead of Charing Cross. Ah well.

Probably would have got it anyway, but I'm currently listening to the excellent Talking Sopranos podcast with Michael Imperioli (Christopher Moltisanti) and Steve Schirippa (Bobby Baccalieri), so this was a gimme.

Ursula von der Leyen? Not in a million years Same here. That was one of those where I thought, "Gotta be Merkel". I can't name another female German 'politician', so I put her down. For defense I wavered between a 0 and a 3 -- I knew it probably wasn't Merkel, but didn't want to chance it -- and sa...

I messed that up. I figured since the seller is called a vintner, it must be vinticulture. Oops.

+1 lunch break. Even if I had thought of coffee break, I probably would have discounted it as I didn't think it would be something in a union contract.

Also, never heard of buffalo plaid.
