- "I'll take 'The Rapists' for $200!"
A: What is "pride"?
Q: This emotion is felt by all his co-workers as Post Politics' J.R. Lind goes on Jeopardy!
tonight at 6 p.m. on Channel 14. Although he describes the whole experience in next week's Scene
— yes, including face time with The Presence, a.k.a. host Alex Trebek — the dapper newshound with the trademark dickie bow has carefully guarded how well he fared as a contestant. But if I were a betting man and I had $15,400 in winnings, I'd bet $15,398 on J.R.
Word has it folks will be piling into a Hillsboro Village watering hole around 5 p.m. this afternoon to cheer J.R. on. Just keep your eyes peeled for a bunch of people who look like they could answer questions about Susan Sontag, the periodic table and 19th century British prime ministers, and follow the line to the bar.
