Friday's question of the day

Apr 10, 2015

Our last question asked: What newly released Forever Stamp has caused some consternation in the literary world? The U.S. Postal Service's new Forever Maya Angelou stamp mistakenly quotes poetry from another poet. Turns out the quote they used can actually be found on page 15 of Joan Walsh Anglund's Cup of Sun. The good news is, though, that Anglund ain't even mad. At left: another worthy submission to quotes that are definitely not Angelou's.

Congratulations to Mark Poepsel, journalism professor with Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions belong to Dagmar EbaughDan Rosenbaum (who bills it "the death of fact checking"), Jeanne KirkJax JacobsenAnita FerrerThomas FeyerCraig PittmanJeff GraubardAnna WestHiram ReisnerAngela GyetvanMarty RayAndrew HoltzTheresa MakrushEdirin Oputu (who wonders, "Couldn't they Google it?"), Priscilla IlarrazaMaureen JenkinsHollywood HighlandsKen WalkerJudyth Mermelstein and Margo Howard for all getting that exactly right, as well.

As for today's question: The Independent Journal Review recently delighted everyone by turning eight Republican presidential candidates into Sims, dropping them into a virtual White House, and letting them run amok. Who "survived" the longest? (Bonus Q: If you watched it, what part amused you the most?)
