  1. I’ll be out at the movies tonight, so I’ll be missing this one for the time being (earlier show sold out). Great job to Dee and Stephen! It looks like our taping group is almost coming to a close, with Johnny up on Wednesday.

    And for what it’s worth, I had Ray Charles for the FJ clue.

      It’s sad how much better I feel when I hear smart people say they didn’t get the FJ. Keep it comin’, people.

    I’m rooting for Patricia Franco, especially since Patricia Franco is my maiden name and I can live vicariously through this Patricia Franco! You go girl!
