Good morning! It’s Tuesday, April 6, 2021. I thought that Aaron Rodgers did a great job hosting yesterday, and can’t wait to see him improve as his two weeks go on. Yesterday, $26,224 was raised for the North Valley Community Foundation.
20th Century American History: A biography of him: “In a sweltering, dimly lit cabin, its window shades closed…his first presidential decisions were made”
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Chris Hammer, an attorney from The Bronx, New York
|Erin Merrill, a middle school social studies teacher from Woodbridge, Virginia
|Brandon Deutsch, a student from Long Beach, California (1-day total: $23,224)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Brandon played very strongly in his first win yesterday, and it sounds like Aaron Rodgers has been very good at keeping the taping delays at a minimum. This, I would say, gives Brandon a good chance to keep momentum going.
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to abide by physical distancing guidelines and when you are not able to do so, properly wear a mask. Ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

This quote comes from Robert D. Caro’s biography The Passage of Power: The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Vol. IV. From the introduction: “And in part this book is the story of a period that began during that flight, for it was on Air Force One, after he had sworn the oath of office with Jacqueline Kennedy standing beside him in a sweltering, dimly lit cabin, its window shades closed to foil would-be assassins, that his first presidential decisions were made: that the transition between the Kennedy Administration and that of Lyndon Baines Johnson began.”
I suspect that a lot of people are going to go down the Calvin Coolidge path—his initial swearing-in took place in his father’s house in Plymouth Notch, Vermont in August 1923—not thinking that a “sweltering, dimly lit cabin” would be the airplane cabin of Air Force One. The writers got tricky here, but it is a direct quote from Caro.
