Interlude: “Whitney Houston, we have a problem”

Did you watch on Wednesday, May 3?  Did you notice the $600 question in the category “Aye Aye, Admiral”?  Years after he was booted from the Bounty, he achieved the ranks of rear and vice admiral.*

I really like this piece, “Inside the Jeopardy! Writers Room,” from the show’s website.  It gives a peek into the process by which the show is written and highlights the creativity, cleverness and consistency of the show’s writers.

Just a week to go until my episode on Thursday, May 11!  I’m basically shoveled out from the blizzard of Napa Writers’ Conference emails–if you haven’t heard from me, it’s because I’m waiting for a response from someone else before I can reply to you.  This weekend, I’m hoping to cover 2015 and 2016 so that I can blog about the taping of the Teachers Tournament as the tournament itself begins to unfold, starting Monday.

*Answer: William Bligh.
