Tubman would have been, had Sadie finished her response or the judge who accepted "John Denve" earlier this season...



made the ruling.

Edit/semi-retraction: Zooming in on that image I can see that there is an r there, just smashed up with the e. The point that Sadie guessed correctly, just didn't get the full answer in still stands, and I still think it's a close ruling.
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?

I hate when the internet brigade dislikes a ruling and starts trotting out supposed counterexamples, as if, say, the ruling on "Emanciptation" means that "Motzart" shouldn't be accepted. The two last letters of a correct response occupying the same space on the screen because the contestant ran out of space is not the same thing as a would-be correct response lacking at least half of its last letter (and as much as its two last letters) because the contestant ran out of time.

Not familiar with Evan Strong and missed the Wheaties connection, thinking about "what products did white male athletes endorse in the 30s, 40s, and 50s that a female and an African-American be pioneers in?" Blanked on Wheaties and settled for Camels with a 2% level of confidence.

Have seen exactly one episode of Outlander, and didn't know it was a series of books.

We drive by the Mother Cabrini shrine every time we go into the mountains from Denver or return. The statue is very visible from I-70.

Another 3-2 week...deep sigh. I started out like a house on fire early this season, getting FJ at about 80% rate the first two-plus months. Since then a long slog in the realm of 50-60&%.

FWIW I always thought that "New England painter" and "seascapes" were Pavlovian for Winslow Homer.

Mo - Lucille Ball was on a short list of precalls for TV Legends. There didn't seem anyone more likely to have that kind of intersection between the early film world and television. I knew Ball had auditioned for the part of Scarlett O'Hara, which doesn't get her all the way back to Buster Keaton, but close enough.
Even though Keaton was of course known for film, the clue says nothing about "the film world," so I don't see the wording of this clue as leading in that direction. I see this clue as asking who was at the top of her field (early TV), period. Without happening to know about their connection, that reduces the clue to "pick an early female TV legend."

I thought Mary Tyler Moore was not a bad pick at all. I said Carol Burnet, also not a bad pick IMHO (apart from being wrong, or course). A few others also fit the stated parameters of the clue. IMO, not enough TOM in this clue to suss it out.

J! preempted -3- times last week... :roll:
And probably another 3 this week (I don't see the Avs sweeping, even if they do somehow win)
NBA Draft on Thursday to make it probably 4 preemptions on ABC West stations.
Good week to have taken a vacation...it's all relying on the DVR anyway... :roll:
