    Very disappointing that Stradivarius was accepted as the name of Antonio Stradivari for the DD in He Varnished. Clearly, the clue was asking for his name (Stradivari), not what we call the instruments he and his family made (Stradivarius).

    Todd is certainly old enough to have seen All in the Family first run, but the lights got to him I guess and he didn’t remember Dingbat, and it was a surprising TS. 47/58 here. He’ll probably make the TofC, and certainly so if they have it in November 2016.

    Wowee. I just had a feeling that whoever got that 5-Letter Capitals DD would win the game if s/he bet big.

    I could not believe that Todd rang in on that $2K Aztecs clue without being sure of the answer. At that point I was saying, that DD is your only hope. Didn’t matter. He was out-buzzed big time today.

    PS. Wikipedia has a page about the Pleiades in folklore and literature. Edgar Allan Poe isn’t mentioned on the page but he did include the Pleiades in his poem “Israfel”
