I agree.

"Coping device" an alternate correct response for "security blanket"?

As others have said, the Friday FJ! clues have been very difficult in the past few weeks. However, I feel many on this board got it right today.

Totally misread the FJ clue. I thought they were asking for the actor. No clue. And LOTF never entered my mind.

Wrote down Warsaw right away, then about halfway through I said to myself 'that name doesn't look Polish' so I went with Prague. Something told me it looked Czech.

Thank you Ghostbusters for teaching me ectoplasm.

"Baloney" a correct response for Bologna?

I went with Hawking and then Gandhi. Oh, well.

J! clue writers love reminding us that George Washington was a freemason.

WLT Captain Kidd?

No idea on FJ!

About halfway through FJ! on the Chicago Exposition clue The Wizard of Oz came to me looking at the picture, but I couldn't come up with Baum in time.

Such a shame Cindy can't bask in the glory of become a 5-day J! champ...

You could tell from the intro to the Tony Bennet category that it was a paid spot and was going to be a time problem.

Judges, "sonar" an acceptable response for "echolocation"?

No clue on FJ!, went with inflation.

I said Supergirl for the Luthor Corp clue (love the show!). That may not have been the answer they were looking for, but I can't remember anything in the clue that wouldn't have led to a reversal, if not counting it as correct outright. I remember the word Super was in the clue, so that led me to S...

Seemed like that part was edited. Alex might've given a "correct" response forgetting the category and had the judges rule incorrect.

WABC-7 NYC played Tuesday's Nov. 8th episode, with Alex in the intro saying "It's Election Day, I hope everyone voted."

Guess I'll have to wait to tomorrow to add my thoughts.

I don't think I could name one Bowie song off the top of my head. That's a knock on myself by the way. I went with "Spirit in the Sky". I knew the singer was probably American, but that's the best I had. Probably because it's used in Apollo 13 . Once again the leader and defending champ finding DD's...
