I knew 10,000 steps from talk show people mentioning the number and in association with press about Fitbits.

Had lad
TX and KS
Iola’s demise was news to me.

For the poll I did not want to get into Learned League things, but I got the Roman à clef question correct prior to getting the FJ! clue right. I very likely would have solved the FJ! correctly anyway, but it didn’t hurt playing the LL Q prior to J!

Mon - only as far as Blanche DuBois
Tue - Lunch Break

Llwellyn (doesn't even crack the top 100)
...wait, 10,000 was a DD? I treated that as a regular clue I think

Texas and... nada

Well, I had no idea Iola Morton perished. Heck, I had no idea who that was in the first place

I didn't know Vivien Leigh was married to Olivier. Worse, I thought she was American. I also thought she was Psycho's Janet Leigh's mother. She was 14 when Janet Leigh was born.

Ditto, so I didn't check the box. I remember the Shaun Cassidy and Parker Stevenson TV adaption from the '70s, but that's as far as my Hardy Boys knowledge extends.

Had Hardy Boys books in the '70s. Iola's death was news.
Had Sotomayor for the alliteration.

No answer for the S N clue
A very long time since I read the Hardy Boys, way before Iola died
Got as far as Kavanaugh, but was trying to think of a right wing justice he replaced and Kennedy never came to mind.

"Hour" sounded more like a time period. The number 10,000 is not especially significant in the culture I was raised in.

Sotomayor<--Souter was my first thought, but I thought some more.

It was annoying to see "key" come up in FJ, but I doubt I'd have defended Roman à clef with more than a 1 anyway.

I copy/pasted Mark's accent grave in the paragraph just above.

I never knew Iola, but that makes her death all the more upsetting.

Sotomayor replaced Souter, and that was my guess (although I didn't know that fact for sure). If I had thought of Kavanaugh, I would have come up with Kennedy and known it was right.

Less than 24 hours after the Owen clue aired (locally), my nephew Owen was born. I got it right thanks to an Owain Glyndwr FJ in Nick Yozamp's College Championship in 2010.

I've known for a long time that "man" is Japanese for 10,000. (It's a borrowing from the Chinese, apparently.)

Arkansas and Kansas for me; I figured out Texas as well within solving time. No problem getting "lad."

Lunch hour Tuesday.
Lucky week otherwise - Vivien Leigh was a desperation guess, I'm not even sure where I picked up "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay" = Otis Redding, couldn't name Sotomayor's predecessor leaving me with Kennedy / Kavanaugh as the only answer I had. I'll take going 3/4 on those clues.

"What are Texas and... Arkansas? (Kansas is the third.)" (I'm from Texas. That one was easy.)

I'd read about Iola before.

Lad didn't some to mind. I forget what I guessed.
Oh, what has science wrought? I sought only to turn a man into a metal-encased juggernaut of destruction powered by the unknown properties of a mysterious living crystal. How could this have all gone wrong?

Thursday came down to Calia-Kavanaugh or Scalia-Skavanaugh and I picked the wrong one... ;)
On Fri I should have been able to get from clef to (en)clave...
Owen Glendower is in Henry IV, Pt. 1.
I muffed the states-ending-in-s clue...
I'm almost inspired to go back and find out how that happened to poor Iola... :cry:

I've taken the liberty of posting that "first crossword puzzle". In the words of Rufus, they do get better.

Vivien Leigh, coffee break, Otis Redding all came pretty quickly. Had some second-guessing with Kavanaugh/Kennedy when I started wondering if Kavanaugh actually started with a C. Then got sidetracked into wondering if it mattered for alliteration.

Went with "cloister" out of desperation on Friday. Could have landed on enclave if I'd simply remembered that the keys gave the clavichord its name.

Worked my way through the Henriad on Britbox a few weeks ago, so Owen Glendower was semi-fresh. Too bad Iola Martin didn't appear in any of the plays. At least then I would have heard of the name.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

Where’s the box for: I started humming the song before the clue reading finished, but couldn’t come up with the name to save my life.
