I think the people writing these articles might be even stupider than Trump. That joke mentioning trump’s son is not even remotely about trump’s son, that joke they call “Islamophobic”... I can’t even fathom how stupid you have to be to take that stance.
Seriously. It'd be like digging up my tweet where I parodied "Losing My Religion" with "That's me in the corner. That's me in the cockfight, losing to a chicken," and claiming I was advocating animal cruelty.
You unimaginable bastard, you.
I think we can make YUBY into an internet acronym!
LOL, IKR? GMTA.

Good morning everyone! I wrote an Op-Ed about the unifying power of Alex Trebek and Jeopardy. It's running in the Boston Herald today: https://twitter.com/bostonherald/status ... 11232?s=20

It was inspired by Jeopardy Producer Mike Richards' line in an interview after Alex's death that Alex "really believed in the importance of Jeopardy." If anyone knows anyone affiliated with the show and could somehow pass this along to Mike, I would really appreciate it!

John Roderick @johnroderick on Twitter cohosts something with Ken Jennings and has fallen, rightfully, into a shitstorm. Jennings may have a problem. I don’t know how to link to Twitter but if you search that handle, it’s all right there.

Here (point 3 is where it really starts):

On a 1-to-10 scale of nastiness, this comes in at about a 0.000002.

I’ve seen worse. But rape and Hitler jokes don’t always go over too well.

An apology has surfaced, and it's an actual apology: http://www.johnroderick.com/an-apology

I think this blows over for Ken and the show.

Agreed. My first thought was "how is this a story?" The fact that Ken chimed in seems like even less of a story.

For now, grain of salt (the J! part starts at 4:00).

"On Alex Trebek’s Final ‘Jeopardy!,’ a Last Introduction From a Friend"

Johnny Gilbert, 92, started on the game show with Trebek in 1984. Now, he must imagine a ‘Jeopardy!’ without his longtime colleague.

I bet it was tough for him to introduce Ken Jennings the first time. If he did it in one take I would be surprised.
