I got so busy working on the Women of World War II stories over the last week (here, here, and here and thanks for asking!)that I neglected to put together a News Cut Quiz last week. Nobody noticed — a blow to your education and my ego. But let’s muster on. This week’s quiz is full of great trivia from this week’s news stories. Where else can you learn the temperature at which a seed of corn germinates. There. That’s your only clue this week.
As always, report back here when you’re done.
I am heading to New England for the next two weeks. I’ll be occasionally posting something but in the meantime, if I hear correctly, MPR’s Tim Nelson and, perhaps, Tom Weber will be your hosts. In the meantime, you can find me on Twitter.
And, what’s that? You say you have a good angle for News Cut, or a person you think I just have to profile? Good. Tell me about it.
