D'oh!
Me too! So I said CA and OR, waffling between that and OR and WA. Just say "in the lower 48" next time, writers!

Not the easiest Final in the world but I'm surprised it was a TS.

"Workingmen" (Marx = "Workers of the world, unite.")
Because everyone knows that quote, right?
My friend, it's the most famous quote from one of the most important people in history.

Personally I think every FJ should be baseball-related. For bonus points, it should involve the New York Yankees.

The "group" thing threw me off for Final. I thought about Peanuts but that's not the name of the group! They don't have a name! I'd protest if I were on the show.

I know that Ruth and Esther have come up before, but I don't think we've ever talked about them in my church. Ruth is likely to get mentioned every now and then since she's an ancestor of Jesus. Esther is pretty much her own story and doesn't get mentioned unless you're studying Esther. If you're J...

Re: Article on "The Ugly, Sexist Aftermath of Appearing on 'Jeopardy"

There are many studies that have shown that harassers and abusers use the casual acceptance/apathy of people in their circle as proof that what they are doing is socially condoned. Britain has been prosecuting people for egregious trolling of public figures, up to and including threats of violence....

Re: Article on "The Ugly, Sexist Aftermath of Appearing on 'Jeopardy"

I was sorry to see "the debate that ruined gaming/MTG/sci fi/etc." come to trivia. Gosh, I'm so sorry that my desire to be part of a safe, welcoming community that values my contributions despite (or -- gasp -- even because of) my ovaries, and insisting that others uphold a standard of decency in t...

Re: Article on "The Ugly, Sexist Aftermath of Appearing on 'Jeopardy"

A last sentiment I will offer - unsolicited though it may be - is I don't think this forum is in need of a McCarthy-like purge of "sexists" and "apologists." Millions of people watch Jeopardy, and among those millions, there are trolls and harassers. Those people are the problem; the people of this...

Sorry it hurts your delicate sensibilities to see women trying to protect themselves from danger instead of shutting up and being good little girls who don't spoil a nice picnic. Sigh.

If you're interpreting "hey, widespread sexual harassment is bad, maybe we should do something about it," as a "political issue" that's your problem.

No politicizing Jeopardy, pls. Thx. Who's politicizing? What's the best way to tackle this problem? Or is it not a problem? Political leanings will largely dictate the extent to which this is seen as warranting drastic action. I'll decline to go any further after seeing Golf mobbed for what I consi...

I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you're not calling "sexual harassment is bad" a controversial political statement. Please don't disappoint me.

Dowton Abbey for the show (because the way the first N is sometimes not clear to me I wasn't sure whether it existed).

I think they would only give you the third since that looks like a typo
