Question of the day

Apr 28, 2016

Our last question asked: Twitter erupted after a viral Vine revealed Ted Cruz made what gaffe at a rally in Indiana? He called the basektball hoop a "basketball ring." Guess that's a pretty big offense in a hoops-lovin' state like Indiana.

Congratulations to Lucia A. Walinchus at Professional News Services for being the very first to get that right! Honorable mentions go out to Eve Byron (who sympathized with Cruz in determining what to call "that thingy the basketball is supposed to drop through. The ring? The 'Net? The hoop?"), Maureen MacGregor (who adds the hashtag #whitemenapparentlycan'tthinkeither), Ken WalkerShaleila (who notes ".looks like ball isn't life for ted cruz"), John Wall (who adds "Bobby Plumb appalled"), Mark Edwards (who notes it's the "official sport of Indiana"), Mark Gibbs (who quips "Next day, calls Fiorina a veep. Three's a charm, Ted"), Robert Fortner and Ron Casalotti (who jokes "Hoosier Daddy?! ... He then said he was looking forward to visiting a baseball rhombus").

As for today's question, here it is: Arianna Huffington is recusing herself from editing stories about what? (And for what reason)?
