Happy Birthday, Alex

Alex Trebek and Jeopardy! boardToday in 1940, in Sudbury, Ontario, Alex Trebek was born (the son of a Franco-Ontarian mother and Ukrainian father, though it's only the French he's good at!). I pick on him, but the truth is it's only because I care. He's perfectly suited to host Jeopardy! and I really enjoy watching that show.

Many happy returns of the day, Alex, and many more seasons on the air.

Have you ever BEEN to Sudbury? We drove through many years ago, and it looked like a lunar landscape, and not in a good way, thanks to the (de?)predations of INCO [International Nickel Co.]. No wonder Alex left -- anyone in their right mind would!!!

And like you, Ridger, I care too.
