Thursday's question of the day
Our last question asked: A world-famous performer has just dropped $52 million on training and a round-trip ticket. Who is it, what is the destination, and what are this person's special plans for the trip? Sarah Brightman is traveling to the International Space Station "to sing in microgravity."
Congratulations to Craig Pittman of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer yesterday's QOTD! Honorable mentions belong to Hiram Reisner, David Daniel, Jeanne Kirk, Paul Boyd, Ken Walker (who notes "Hope she stays inside"), Lori Nash Byron, Dagmar Ebaugh, Ron Casalotti (who predicts "Soon to be a broadway musical?"), Hollywood Highlands (who evidentally is not a Brightman fan, tweeting, "(Hope she's not in big hurry to come back!"), Rachel Roh, Cindi Lash and Teri McNally for also getting it right. Carrie Gray didn't technically answer the question, but she did tweet, "I can't even. This just makes me sad. $52 million on this? Really?"
As for today's question, here it is: The USS Theodore Roosevelt had an unusual delay in Norfolk, Va. What delayed the aircraft carrier's departure by two days?
