Question of the day
Our last question asked: Two Middle East locations just set records for what in the Eastern Hemisphere (and possibly also for the world)? Last week Mitribah, Kuwait and Basra, Iraq both hit 129 degrees Fahrenheit (or 54 Celsius), the two hottest temperatures ever recorded for their region and very possibly the hottest reliably recorded in the world, period.
Congratulations to Brian Gallagher (at right) for being the very first to get that right (and for his amusing answer, "For being the hottest locations. And not from Pokemon GO either")! Honorable mentions go out to Laura Kath (who adds that they're "#Hotzones in more ways than thermostat!"), Margo Howard, ScanMyPhotos.com, Lucia A. Walinchus (who marvels "Wow makes the 106 it was here today seem chilly"), Leigh Egan, Buck Borasky, Ron Casalotti (who jokes "Yeah, but it's a dry heat"), Mark Gibbs and Chris Lombardi for all answering correctly, as well.
As for today's question, here it is: Today we're mourning a woman whose voice you've probably heard a hundred times but never heard her name (or saw her face). Who was she, and why is she known as "American cinema’s most unsung singer?"
