LOOK AT THOSE CURVES $2000: On the Lorenz curve, the horizontal axis indicates households poorest to richest, and the vertical shows the percentage of wealth held--both in cumulative numbers; a saggier curve indicates greater this in income distribution - My response was inequality.

Fri - Lapps. (I figured 'Sami' was a better answer, but closest could get to before time ran out was 'Savi')

Inequality

Have not read/been read Goodnight, Moon.

Concorde on Monday and expecting tons of people to answer that way

Tuesday I came up with "Goodnight Moon" while discussing the clue with naurae29 but can't take credit for it because I needed a little coaching

Samuel Johnson biographer -> Boswell is something I've had in my pocket since Boswell was a correct FJ response in 2009. The diary thing threw me slightly, but it was window dressing on a Pavlov. (I let Danish astronomer -> Brahe escape me this week, though.)

I said Sami with middling confidence.

Briefly considered the Concorde, but figured Pat Nixon would not be dedicating an Anglo-French project.

Might have flipped through Goodnight Moon once, never had it read to me.

Knew there was another word for Lapps beginning with "S", but could only think of Suomi, which I knew was wrong, so stuck with Lapps.

SST; Sendak's WTWTA - more likely to have read about the Brown biography than to have read Good Night Moon itself...Said Laplanders, thought of changing to Lapps, wasn't even certain they're the same... :roll: Did not know Sami... :oops:
I'd say Boswell is basic trivia and literary knowledge. The name is a colloquialism - Tony Schwartz has been called Trump's Boswell for writing The Art of the Deal-

Had to do red faces for Monday and Tuesday's FJs because I so should have gotten those (and made it a 4/5 week instead of a measly 2/5) with my knowing the Boeing 747 debuted sometime around the extreme late 60s/early 70s (I guessed the Concorde) and Goodnight Moon being an utmost staple of my wee-one-hood (guessed Charlie And The Chocolate Factory).

My remembering/nabbing James Boswell was all thanks to Sherlock Holmes..."I am lost without my Boswell.", referring to Dr. Watson and his chronicling Holmes' cases.

Letter S for Slavs on Friday's FJ.

Instaget FJs all week. Goodnight Moon was a favorite of my kids, as was another of her books, Wait Till the Moon Is Full. There's also a black humored parody of Goodnight Moon called Goodnight Keith Moon at http://www.goodnightkeithmoon.com/welcome (not for kids).

Said "What are the Sami or Lapps" on Friday so checked both boxes. :D

I have never read "Goodnight Moon", but then, I only got around to "Little Prince" in my forties. I'll make "Goodnight Moon" my fifties project.

I'm sorry to see there's apparently no Jacques Cousteau, Jr. carrying on the tradition. Makes me wonder "why bother?"

I'm the right age for "Entebbe". I remember the competing pair of (TV?) movies.

My response to the $2000 "Curves" question was "tl;dr".
I'm smart and I want respect.

Almost precalled Sami but couldn't think of what the clue might be.

Secret Garden on Tuesday, for lack of anything better--only previous exposure to Goodnight Moon was the recent LL reference. Probably should have gotten Seychelles on Wednesday. Got a bit lucky guessing Lapps on Friday. Clammed on the "curves" clue.

Caught up again, for the time being.
