DD2's wording limits it to Robert Frost and his poem while credit to Lindsey for managing to have a word with the required 16 letters and in the ballpark.
That Guy chiming in to point out that conservationist has only 15 letters. Lindsey should have kept counting.
Has something similar happened on the show before with these same two words?

I also thought they wanted the Kraken. Very poorly worded IMO. This is the kind of slop Alex weeded out.
The clue reads:
Cetus is known as the whale, but in mythology, it was the sea creature this hero saved Andromeda from
I was going to quibble, but you might have half a point. Easy enough to clue in on "it was the sea creature," I suppose, especially if she stressed "it" (which I doubt), but hard to argue against "this hero" being the tipoff they wanted Perseus.

I greatly dislike them accepting the answer Sherman since the question asked the name of the ACT: the Sherman Antitrust Act.
And to think that I thought I was being a crank (h/t Dr. Seuss).

Similar acceptances like "Sherman" for the antitrust act have occurred previously; what I was surprised about was Dionysus getting a new last vowel with nary a peep.
Yeah, that one bugged me too.
Way off topic, congrats on your big HQ win a couple days back.
LT: King Lear, Book of Kells, Perseus, environmentalist, Volga, Paul Ryan (does my heart good to know people are forgetting that jackass), Andy Reid. Might have guessed Poland off Sobieski if I'd been far enough ahead, or behind.
On FJ I flailed around and finally matched Laura with cockroach. I've heard of the Butterfly Effect but didn't know it originated in a Bradbury story. Is this the part where I insert the Simpsons
clip of Martin dismissing his work? No, it is not, because I like all the Bradbury I've read... which clearly wasn't enough for tonight.
