Re: Monday, July 29, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I got to "zzz," sounded it out, and it sounded like buzzing. So that's what I said. Snoring occurred to me late, but I stuck to my first answer.

Can't even go 5/5 on Kids' Week :)

I actually had Philip Seymour Hoffman before Dustin Hoffman.
Longfellow and dolphin were both "it's better than nothing" guesses.

Billy Budd I couldn't come up with in time; I felt I knew Dayton but had no hope of coming up with it; and Croseus I'd only heard of in parody before.

For me, 1991 was the TOM; it pointed me right at the former USSR, and from there it was easy.

Prize + sailor = Cracker Jack. But wait, not alliterative. (I misread the clue as saying whistles were a prize in 1963, so knowing Cracker Jack was older wouldn't have helped.) Hmm. Cap'n Crunch? For the majority-minority DD, I flipped between that and minority-majority, which I settled on. Wikipedi...
