Question of the Day

On Friday, we asked: The first woman to run for president was Victoria Woodhull and yesterday, news came out that Brie Larson will be playing Woodhull in an upcoming biopic. What did the suffragette’s father do for a living?

Answer: Woodhull’s father, Reuben "Old Buck" Buckman Claflin, is reported to have ben a con man and snake oil salesman. But we prefer what Alexandra Svokos wrote in her answer on Twitter: “Her father was an asshole for a living.”

This time, congrats to Mark Edwards‏ who was the first to answer correctly.

Your question of the day for today is…What two things went into creating Carmen Sandiego’s name?
