We've seen Streisand in FJs at least a few times; surprised that more didn't remember that. People here remember Leadville but not Barbra.

The Duke Ellington TS was sad. He's arguably America's greatest composer.

I had the most stupid incorrect response for FJ!. Yes, it was a country in Africa...but quite possibly the worst guess while still being on the right continent. Any guesses?
Algeria.

Re: Monday, October 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ferlinghetti was definitely a YEKIOYD, but I think it's a reasonably well-known bit of trivia that he owns or owned the City Lights book shop in SF. My twisted logic was, "Well, Ghirardelli is from there, and they're both Italian, so let's go with that." :) At first reading this I assumed Ghirardel...

Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

As a person who has pancreatic cancer and is on an aggressive chemotherapy cocktail, I can offer these comments. Mouth sores are a common side effect. They came on strong after my second round of chemo and made my tongue feel enlarged and it was hard to even move my tongue around. They have a specia...

For our J! historians: the leader at the end of the J! round had $1600. How does this rank all time?

The weekly poll ought to have a box for "I would have won this game from the 4th podium".

Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

I really do appreciate all your kind thoughts.

Alex Trebek knows that this latest curveball is just part of the deal with this disease.  It's important to be relentlessly positive.  He's done well on chemo before and he'll do well again.

Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

I am now five weeks into taking chemo infusions for pancreatic cancer, and I can offer this perspective: Alex Trebek is a remarkable incredible trooper for being able to continue to host Jeopardy to the high standard that he sets.  Chemo really does take it out of you.  I am on a two week cycle for ...

Re: I Have Something In Common With Alex Trebek

Update: my first chemo session is scheduled for August 12th. It will be a "aggressive" cocktail called folfirinox. A port will be installed into me. I will be taking in the cocktail every other Monday, and then the next Wednesday I head back for port maintenance. I don't have to stay in the hospital...

Re: I Have Something In Common With Alex Trebek

Here is what I learned from the pancreatic doctor today: there are three kinds of tumors: small, medium, and large. They only operate on small tumors. My tumor is currently medium. Therefore I will be going on chemotherapy for perhaps six months to shrink the tumor and its tentacles to an operable s...
