Question of the day

Oct 27, 2015

Our last question asked: What high profile person recently was kicked off an Amtrak car, and for what reason? It seems it was New Jersey governor Chris Christie (oh he of the Bridgegate scandal; you're welcome for the gif!), allegedly kicked off for screaming on his cell phone. It's worth noting, however, that one passenger is strongly disputing that story.

Congratulations to Elisha Fieldstadt of NBC News for being the very first to get that right! Honorable mentions go out to Thomas FeyerBuffalogal in NYC (who theorizes that he "never learned how to play the 'quiet game'"), Lucia A. WalinchusKathyatChryslerKen Walker (who quips "because the first rule of Amtrak's quiet car is don't talk in the quiet car"), Fabiola CamachoMargo Howard (who notes he then "went 2 the Cafe Car"), Sara JacobsonBecky YerakNichelle StephensTiffany R. Jansen (who notes it's "no surprise" that Christie "doesn't understand the point of a quiet car"), Claudine LaforceTom Dines (who jokes that this is just punishing Chris Christie "for being too Chris Christie"), Editor Mark Allen, Tim FarnsworthTara ClarkeSarah LoydCharlotte LoBuonoNews NY and LI, Buck BoraskyEd JoyceDeonna AndersonMark Gibbs (who adds that it might have been "maybe for slurping his McDonald’s smoothie too loudly"), Fester Gloom (who adds "I now believe Quiet Cars were invented solely so this could, one day, occur" ... and we might add, nice Halloween name!), Adrienne NardellaJohn WallWaterfield DesignsPriyankiRobin Tierney and Hollywood Highlands for all answering correctly as well.
As for today's question, here it is: BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski just wrote an open letter to Rand Paul asking him to stop doing what?
