    dont even joke about it vj, setting up my new one was a nightmare……i’m glad it’s done!!!

    if i understand fj correctly, then there are 15 pages that are filled with words that start with murder? in other words, 15 pages full of “murder….”??or are other words on those pages too? the clue is a little ambiguous to me. maybe i just have to plug in my brain here. i don’t know if alex gave any further explanation, show airs now in a little less than 3 hours.
    would have been a hoot, if catherine and alan could have pulled it off again. despite the strange clue, “murder” was also my first reaction, like vj hinted in the spoiler talk.

      it also makes sense, since “m” is in the middle of the alphabet and the pages mentioned are a little past the middle. but there are probably not many entries that start with x,y or even z….so m(urder) fits perfectly. have to browse through the book when i go to the bookstore next time , to see if ALL words on tose pages mentioned start with murder or only some, has anyone this book by any chance and can enlighten me??? thanks in advance!

      My “hint” is from Stephen King, John, and was actually a Jeopardy clue earlier this year on May 8th:

      MOVIES BY ONE-WORD QUOTE $400: 1980: “Redrum!”

        and what was the movie???? was that connected with “the shining”? i think i remember something like that, but with the “D” facing the other way?i believe it was written on a bedroom door or something and in the mirror it spelled MURDER…..i saw that movie only once and that by accident?
        and as a ps: to speak with pete seeger: where have all the posters gone???
