Mario claims he's shy, which might be true, but I wonder if he thinks that gives him a license to be rude.

The best part is the comment section.
Never got to the comment section. Ran into the spoiler edited into the article at 7:48pm EDT. As I was watching the episode.
"episode"?
""episode"?"?
Old habit, but....

Your question did no such thing. Perhaps if you broke out of your three posting formats (narrating yourself in parentheses, quoting someone and then repeating part of the quote in quotation marks with a question mark afterward, link to article) you'd make yourself better understood.

Yes. It's particularly galling to see others faulted for their "misunderstanding" of that sort of vague, ineffectual mode of inquiry.

My favorite type of work e-mails are the ones that are just a forward or reply with "???" added in the body.

Upon further (and depressing) research, it appears the Victor Hugo letter is likely humbug.

In a departure from ASCII humour, here is Matt Amodio's appearance this morning with David Faber on Squawk on the Street:



He was also on CNN's New Day yesterday - a very fun chat with John Berman - but I have not seen a clip of that appearance.

Judge plays 'Jeopardy!' with prospective jurors in Kyle Rittenhouse trial
While technical issues were sorted prior to jury selection in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial Monday, Judge Bruce Schroeder played "Jeopardy!" with prospective jurors to pass the time.

"Not to be Confused for 400," Schroeder said. "On the menu, scallops are shellfish and these are immature or green onions."

"Scallions," many prospective jurors could be heard saying. "And, of course, that's correct," Judge Schroeder replied.

"How about Famous Women for 200," Schroeder continued. "This sprinter set records in both the 100 and 200 meters in the 1988 Olympics."

"Who is Florence Griffith Joyner?" Schroeder told the prospective jurors.

The unusual moment lasted for about 20 minutes. Judge Schroeder said playing the game was a longstanding tradition in the court. Only the jurors were allowed to answer.
Both of the quoted games are from late 2018 (Season 35).

The short answer is the first cite they can find referring to it is 30 years after the incident would have happened.
