Sorry to go OT straight away… Does anyone know how WORDLE manages double letters? Or are they never used?

House Sergeant-at-Arms William Walker says he intends to train “insider threat specialists” to monitor for security officials whose “allegiance has changed,” Politico reports

This is bigger than it sounds

OK. Now I see what Fauci did about Paul: Showed printouts of Paul’s website that are fundraising off of his attacks on Fauci.

Kelly Canon, a well-known conservative activist in Texas who peddled Covid-19 vaccine misinformation, has died of complications caused by the virus — just a few weeks after attending a “symposium”* against the shots, the Daily Beast reports.

Found it!

Letters can appear twice: This complicates matters, especially when you’re running out of letters to try on word four or five. But letters often recur, as with words like chill, sissy and ferry having been the correct answers in the past.

Ted let Trump insult his wife as fat and slander his father as a serial killer.

Without demanding a public apology or retraction.

That says all about how low he is willing to debase himself to be accepted by those in power.

I like Ted Cruz a lot more than most of my colleagues. And I hate Ted Cruz

I just played for the first time, and got it in four!
Though for weeks, I have been obsessing over the NYTimes’ Spelling Bee games (both the four-letter daily online and the five-letter print version in the Magazine) so I feel pretty confident working with letters.

Thanks!

The first time I played I didn’t realize that the yellow indicated right letter but wrong location. I actually got an anagram of the correct word on try six. That’s when I figured out where I went wrong. Still, six tries is not good. I have to work on that.

Nah, as you said, you didn’t know the rules. Knowing what the yellow meant, and that the keyboard shades out the letters you’ve already used, it was merely a matter of sufficient time to ponder the available combinations until a viable 5-letter word with no repeated letters came to mind.

So Eartha’s been on the sofa for the last few days curled up on this soft throw my company sent me (they send a lot of gifts). Well, the missus used it last night on a different chair (the one I use as my office for most of the day usually) and I came to sit down and here she was. So I sat next to her and she accepted the compromise.

I found this story interesting, because its a rare example of someone born in the US who is not a natural born citizen. Her father was a diplomat, so when she left to join the Islamic State, the Obama Administration (ironically) canceled her passport.

Imagine if you will a classroom of mostly black kids being subjected to a lily white version of U.S. History that clearly labels them as the bad guys and tells them they should be thankful that slaves were treated so well.
