Now obviously, I won’t be able to respond to all of you individually, but I do want you to know that I do read everything I receive. And I am thankful for the kind words, the prayers and the advice...

Tom Wolf (D) and his Republican challenger, Scott Wagner, sat on stage, their faces frozen and their hands clasped. And Alex Trebek, the “Jeopardy!” host and the moderator of Monday night’s debate, let loose, joking that the only thing with a lower approval rating than the Pennsylvania legislature was the Catholic Church. Polite laughter from the audience quickly turned to boos. Trebek, dressed in a purple flowered tie with a matching pocket square, looked out at the crowd watching the two candidates face off at...

Lisa Beth Davis, a retired Army Master Sergeant, took Trebek’s question in stride. Trebek asked the woman: “That must be really tough for a woman because a master sergeant is giving orders most of the time. How was it for you?”

    WASHINGTON (May 20) — The nation's top geography whiz breezed through questions about mountain ranges, rivers and world capitals Wednesday, but he was stumped when National Geographic Bee host Alex Trebek asked him to name one of his weaknesses. "Um ..." said Eric Yang, 13, pausing. The Texas teen had just revealed to the "Jeopardy!" host how he crafts his own chess strategies and plays the piano. "That's OK," Trebek replied. "You remind me of a former president, but we won't get into that."

    Anyone been watching Jeopardy! recently? The current champion, Larissa Kelly, has won 5 games in a row with a total of $179,797 (averaging almost $36,000 a game). Will she be the next Ken Jennings? Her 5-day total is a new Jeopardy! record for most cash won in a contestant's first 5 games (although it is not a record when adjusted for the increase in clue values). For comparison, Ken won $156,000 in his first 5 games.
