Question of the Day
Yesterday's Question of the Day asked … This famous broadcaster takes particular pride in his Irishness, stating in one of his books, “Whatever I have done or will do in this life, I’m working-class Irish American [insert name here].” That would be Bill O'Reilly at FOX News.
Congratulations to Tampa Bay Times' Craig Pittman, who was the very first person to tweet us the correct answer! Congrats also go out to Arnold M. Knightly, M. Edward Borasky, Edward Tenner, Jeanne Kirk, Amy Wang with the Arizona Republic, Bill Chuck of the Chicago Sun-Times and the Boston Globe (and who also happened to work with O'Reilly on "New England Afternoon" in Boston), eschuman, Rick Marianetti, and Hugh Cutler for also getting it right!
As for today's question: This Irish American Wall Street Journal columnist had a grandfather from Co. Donegal and wrote speeches for Ronald Reagan. She wrote of her roots, "The Irish are often nervous about having the appropriate face for the occasion. They have to be happy at weddings, which is a strain, so they get depressed; they have to be sad at funerals, which is easy, so they get happy." Who is she?
