Who is Helen Keller?


Results will go up on the main page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of the main page.


A fun fact about Helen Keller: On a trip to Japan, she asked about Hachiko, the famed Akita who was loyal to his owner almost a decade after the owner died. She was given her own Akita and because of this, the Akita breed was introduced into the United States.

  1. Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
    Doug $12,400
    Hunter $6,200
    Debbi $5,400

    Final Results:
    Debbi $5,400 – $1,601 = $3,799 (Who is Mother Teresa?)
    Hunter $6,200 – $6,200 = $0 (Who is Emily Dickinson?)
    Doug $12,400 + $0 = $12,400 (wrote Emily Dickinson, crossed it off and responded correctly) (1-day total: $12,400)

    FYI: I disagree with Doug’s choice of bet today, but his choice is certainly defensible. Here’s an article I wrote about it last January.
