Question of the day
Our last question asked: The New Year's ball has been dropped in Times Square every year since 1907, with the exception of which years? And for what reason? Those years would be 1942 and 1943, when the ceremony was suspended due to the wartime "dimout" of lights in New York City.
Congratulations to Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to get that right! Honorable mentions go out to Ron Casalotti, Robin Soslow, Mark Gibbs (who quips "The only times that NYC hasn't had balls") and Margo Howard for all getting some portion of that right.
As for today's question, in honor of the holiday, here it is: What just happened to the periodic table that's causing a stir?
... We’ll announce the winners in the next Daily!
