Question of the Day

Yesterday's question of the day asked: What was the implied advice "Dear Abby" gave in her very first published column? This one was a toughie, but here's the answer we were looking for: her very first column ran Jan. 9, 1956, in The San Francisco Chronicle and she dispensed four separate pieces of advice: first, telling a secretary to stop sleeping with her married boss; second, reminding a fiancé she shouldn't marry someone she doesn't trust; third, recommending a sister not interfere in a relationship characterized by domestic violence; and fourth, advising a 16-year-old who had never been kissed.

Congratulations to Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to name at least one of those situations! Honorable mentions belong to Edward Tenner and Irene DeBlasio for naming one of those, as well!

As for today's question, here it is: In 1990, what incident took place in Boston that was considered a "watershed moment" for women in sports journalism?
