Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results and will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early to late evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
The reason why Walt Disney used pseudonyms (like M. T. Lott — a pun on “empty lot”) and shell companies (like Tomahawk Properties) to buy the required land he needed for his Disney World resort was because he thought that if landowners knew that Disney was interested in the land, they would hold out for a much higher price. Some parties, looking back, still view the move as controversial.
