The standings are correct through 906. 9021amyers, why do you think they're in error?
At least for my score, the total doesn’t reflect the five points I earned on question 906.

My score doesn’t seem right either. I should have 32 points (7,6,-4,4,15,4) unless I’m doing something wrong

908 - NEW JERSEY

  • What sitcom starring Bea Benadaret served as the base for the notorious Timothy McVeigh?
  • What author of "The Power and the Glory" and "Our Man in Havana" won the first two Super Bowls, and then some
  • Name the former senator from Massachusetts who became a senator from Illinois, had a hit record, and got a senate office building named for him
Number of correct responses to each:

Tommy Thompson seedless grapes, 7
The Night They Invented Champaign-Urbana, 4

Kodiak, Valdez and Homer most definitely satisfy the question posed in 907.

I see the problem with the standings after 906 and have updated them. However, the standings after 908 are correct as posted.

The question for 907 pinned the route sought with "inside passage" and "starts at a gold rush port not far from a Canadian territorial capital" so Homer, Valdez, and Kodiak are still wrong.

The photos in bonus 903 all went unused in previous TDs in this ring. The B&A questions in bonus 908, same.

I still get the :lol: about Jor-Elena Kagan.

I will go with Amarillo as the largest city in the northern Texas panhandle. Wikipedia led me to a Texas historical authority reference that definitively states that the panhandle ends north of Lubbock. I should have better pinned it, e.g., "whose name is a foreign color"; "made famous in a Neil Sedaka song," but I think we should let the term panhandle speak for itself and say Lubbock is no more in it than Gainesville is in Florida's.
Thanks for the additional research.

We stayed on my grandparent's farm outside of Lubbock for a couple of years as a child; I went with it because I remember my grandfather talking about the farm having "the worst of both worlds" when he finally sold it. He would say that the northern part of the farm got tornadoes and blizzards because it was in the panhandle, while the southern part got floods, dust storms, and grasshopper swarms because it wasn't.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

Finally my research of Alaskan cruises has paid off! Remembered Skagway as one of the ports of call and hoped it would be a correct answer

Answer one of these questions about the cities of the Golden State.
  • What city is the home of Disneyland Park and that angelic baseball team that keeps changing its name?

912 - GEORGIA

The most famous son of the 912 is President Jimmy Carter, who at 93, is only slightly behind GHW Bush as the oldest president to ever live. Answer one of these questions about Carter.
  • Since his name is James Earl Carter Junior, it might not be legitimate to ask his father's name. But what was his mother's name?
  • Name any of Carter's four children. (Will be scored separately.)
  • Who served as vice president under Carter?
  • Give Carter's wife's maiden name, first and last.
  • What budget director ran into ethical problems early in Carter's first year and was forced to resign?
  • What secretary of state resigned after disagreeing with Carter about invading Iran to rescue the hostages?
  • Decades before the "me too" movement, what former Carter cabinet member declined to seek reelection to the Senate after nine women came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct?
  • Was Carter's first official position serving on the school board, health board, or library board?
  • What service academy did Carter graduate from as a nuclear engineer?
  • Since leaving the presidency, Carter has built hundreds of homes under the sponsorship of what charity?
Knowledge about the 39th president seems uneven

I didn’t even know there was a city named Yreka. I just assumed it was there to sound similar to Eureka, which is where my answer came from.

If you ever drive I-5 from CA to OR, Yreka is the last town of consequence before you cross the Siskiyou mountains. This becomes important if in the winter the Siskiyou pass closes due to heavy snowfall. There also an apocryphal story about the name Yreka coming from the Greek for “I lost it,” but no need to go there.
