    The scopes monkey trial for teaching evolution eventually got John scopes.arrested in south Carolina. This was eventually censored and was not taught.

    Great job by all players.though I hope Eduardo gets that wildcard.spot. how long did scopes spend time in.prison, VJ?

      No time, Lou. He got fined $100, and the case was later overturned. Also, it was in Dayton,Tennessee. One of the clues in the list I linked to in the recap was

      BORN & DIED ($2000) A statesman born March 19, 1860 in Salem, Illinois; died July 26, 1925 in Dayton, Tennessee

      Nobody got it and Alex told the players that Dayton was the important part of the clue. So when we see Dayton, we’re supposed to see Scopes, Darrow and Bryan. But only if it’s Tennessee.

      If it’s Ohio, think Jonathan Dayton, the youngest signer of the Constitution (who was actually from New Jersey)

    I was having quite a time getting this up today. The internet was going in and out. Doesn’t happen that much so I guess I can’t complain too much but it’s frustrating all the same.
