Question of the day
Our last question asked: The city of Cleveland plans to use part of a $50 million federal security grant to buy what in advance of Republican National Convention? The city wants to buy 2000 sets of extra riot gear, because apparently they're that scared of a backlash. Or maybe they just want to do the world's largest mass re-enactment of that one Walking Dead episode?
Congratulations to Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions also go out to these excellent people for getting it right: Craig Pittman, Mike Rostabare (we gave you credit for "bullet-proof hairpieces"), Kyra Deprez, Tania, Charlotte LoBuono (who jokes "Was hoping it would be the right face foundation for Donald Trump!"), Chris Lombardi, Lucia A. Walinchus (who teases that it's "just to protect favorite son Lebron James"), Jayna Wallace, Sarah-Ann Soffer (whose reaction was "literally, no words"), Ron Casalotti (who darkly jokes "although there's no truth to the rumor they ordered the 'Chicago 1968' package") and Temple Williams (who snarks "although Cleveland has rarely been a riot"). Shout-outs to Brian Hyland for guessing "a penis pump?" because that's where this election has brought us and Dan Rosenbaum for his very Cleveland trivia-heavy answer of "a) Stephan Curry's contract. b) a beautiful wall to protect against immigrants from Akron."
As for today's question, here it is: A manager has written to the Boston Globe recently to protest what?
