Question of the day

Aug 08, 2016

Our last question asked: The last two journalists were seen leaving what place once considered the center of UK journalism? That would be Fleet Street. In its hey day, this street was considered "the pinnacle of a journalist's career, with nearly every national paper and several provincial newspapers having offices within a half-mile radius." And yes, it was also provided a backdrop for the fictional "demon barber" Sweeney Todd.

Congrats to Lucia A. Walinchus (at right) of Professional News Services for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions go out to Ron Casalotti (who notes "The Daily Courant 1702 to the Sunday Post closed Friday. Fleet Street housed the demon journos of the rag trade"), Lizzy Shaw (who quips "Perhaps they stopped by for one of Mrs. Lovett's meat pies on their way home"), Mark Gibbs (who suggests "Maybe rename it Fled Street?") and John Wall for all getting that exactly right, as well.

As for today's question, here it is: The New York Times brings us a wedding tale today that's both heart-warming and heartbreaking -- the bride could not be walked down the aisle by her father, but was accompanied by someone who was special for what reason?
