Today's question of the day

Jan 08, 2015

Yesterday's question asked: ​What did a professional athlete request during an event that could be considered an unusual wake-up call? Serena Williams ordered an espresso after losing her first set in an Australian tennis match.

Congratulations to Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer that correctly! Yes, your instincts were right, Ken! Also, honorable snaps all around for Marilyn ParelMatthew HurstRon Casalotti (who wonders "isn't that application of a stimulant mid-match, which can't be 'legal'?"), Annie M. Dance and Aditi Sharma Kalra for getting that right, too!

As for today's question, here it is, respectfully submitted: Journalists all over have been mourning with the Charlie Hebdo publication in the wake of this week's tragedy. What was the inspiration for the publication's current name, and what was the real reason its name was changed to this in 1970?
