Question of the Day

Friday's question asked: Which was the first newspaper founded in Greenwich Village, New York? You might have been tempted to say "The Village Voice," but actually, the Voice was not the first local paper in Greenwich Village--that honor goes to The Villager, founded in 1933! The Voice was founded 22 years later, in 1955.

Congratulations to Edward Tenner for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions also go out to Ken WalkerJennifer MasciaChris Lombardi (who counts it as a former workplace), Marilyn Parel and Hollywood Highlands for getting that right, as well.

As for today's question, here it is: Which disaster in 1906 became the first major event of its kind to be captured by the first newsreels for viewing across the nation?
