Today's question of the day

Dec 17, 2014

Yesterday's question asked:  In "a rare show of defiance" toward the NRA, yesterday the Senate confirmed who as surgeon general of the United States? And why are there sore feelings at the NRA? That would be Dr. Vivek Murthy, who faced fierce opposition from the NRA to his nomination because of tweets characterizing guns as a "health care issue."

Congratulations to Dan Rosenbaum of for being the first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions also belong to Ryan GormanFrancis HincheyMarty RayKen WalkerEugene Hunt (who jokingly wonders if we can "retire Ken Walker to the MRD Trivia Hall of Fame yet"), Chris LombardiAshley M. ApodacaClaudine LaforceAmy ZipkinDagmar EbaughHollywood Highlands and Jennifer Mascia for all getting that right, too!

As for today's question, here it is: What heart-warming act did a Norwegian ice bather in Oslo recently perform that's earned him the title of "hero" by some?
