This article isn't exactly current, and it was linked in this thread at the time it was written, but it's worth sharing again because it's relevant to very current events.

Matt Jackson's mother is Amy Berman Jackson (the judge overseeing the Roger Stone case--the article's from 2015 so it doesn't make mention of that)
... and the one that Stone posted a picture of with a target next to her head.

From a Washington Post article about Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who will be sentencing Paul Manafort on Wednesday:

She was formerly married to Darryl Jackson, a Washington lawyer and senior Republican appointee who served in Bush’s Commerce Department, after the two met as young prosecutors. One of their two sons credited them for his eclectic upbringing during an appearance on a national trivia television show, saying, “My mom is white, liberal and Jewish, and my dad is black, Christian and conservative.”

Her Wikipedia article says they are still married. Sad to hear they divorced after such a long marriage.

No surprise the 3/18 issue of TV Guide had a mention of Alex Trebek (spoiler for large image of article)

For Alex back at work this week Google "trebek returns to work" and pick the link of your choice.

Article about the 1984 J! tryout process, which apparently ran only in the long-gone San Diego County edition of the L.A. Times. (Open the first image in a new tab/window to enlarge.)
