The Week Contest
This week’s question: A New York rapper who boasted that he was ignoring expert health warnings and staring at the solar eclipse without protective eyewear was forced to cancel several concerts after suffering eye damage. If Joey Bada$$ were to release a new song about his illuminating eclipse experience, what could he title the track?
Last week’s contest: A University of Georgia professor is allowing students to choose their own grades to reduce their stress, and to walk out of any class if they don’t like “the group dynamics.” If the professor were to write a book outlining this educational philosophy, what could it be titled?
THE WINNER: “I Don’t Give an ‘F’” Don Onnen, Tolland, Conn.
SECOND PLACE: “School of No Knocks” Elaine Henderson, Gettysburg, Pa.
THIRD PLACE: “A is for Appeasement” Greg Campbell, Wilmington, Del.
