Question of the Day
Yesterday's question asked: This week the US Fish and Wildlife service revealed that this animal is facing threat of extinction and may be wiped out soon. Name the animal. That would be the African lion.
Congratulations to Matthew Delman for being the very first to answer that correctly! (You should also check out Delman co-hosting #wjchat later tonight on unique ways for freelance journalists to make money). Honorable mentions also go out to Craig Pittman, Nikki Lavoie, Amy B Wang, Dan Rosenbaum, Carrie Gray, Ken Walker, Alva Lewis, Rebecca Toback, Claudine Laforce and Annie M. Dance for also getting that exactly right.
Our apologies to folks who answered correctly but whose names regrettably were left out of the newsletter version of this post; Twitter omitted your answers from the keyword search if you used the plural version of "lion."
As for today's question, here it is: Today marks the 85th anniversary of the onset of what catastrophic financial event?
