HS:

Kelly: $1,200/Gavin: $1K/Sara-Jane: $2,600

Kelly chooses the TDD in the popular $800 spot of Thoreau-ing a 200th Birthday! & is in 3rd w/ $1800, 1/3 of current leader Sara-Jane’s score; Gavin’s in the middle w/ $3400.

Thoreau was a protege of this thinker & lived at his home, acting as handyman & gardener.

“Who is Emerson?”…brightens this girl up to $3600.

KABOOM!
BIBLICAL BEFORE & AFTER

Kaboom! DD #1 goes off at the hands of Sara-Jane at its $1600 box & she’s dropped to R-U status w/ $8200; Gavin possesses a $4400 lead & Kelly’s still at the back of this pack w/ $6600. $1.5K is the bet made by Sara-Jane.

The National Demolition Assoc. says this process of collapsing a building “is the most visible face” of the industry.

“What is demolition?”…not the right one- implosion. The other’s under The Pittsburgh Address…Sara Jane claims it in the $1200 clue & has $500 more than the last time ($8700); she’s got a $5900 deficit between she & Gavin. She’ll attempt to regain that $1.5K.

In a 1983 Pittsburgh speech, Ronald Reagan spoke about frustrated & “permanently laid-off” workers in this industry.

“What is gold?”…wrong metal- steel.
