If he had been given the prize with a misspelled answer would have been cheating. It is like these sports leagues where everyone gets a trophy winners, losers, and everybody in between.

I agree. I read an article where he claims he was "cheated." No, you weren't. You were held to the same rules as everyone else. His parents need to wise up, toughen up and drop some knowledge on this kid pretty quick or he is in for a world of trauma. High school even begun. I can't imagine what he will be like there, in college and eventually the workforce. An early lesson in "it's not all about you" and "you are only special to your parents" would be wise at this point.

Kid from Newtown,something special? I don't think they can get McKinney and Blumenthal to change the rules on that one. Will it help if Llodra lies and smiles some more? Should he get family lawyers Kershaw and Ragusa on it? Both of those attornies would sell their mother for a dime.

Maybe Malloy, McKinney, Blumenthal, and Cafero can get Jeopardy to ECert another illegal rule change.

Llodra has become addicted to attention; she doesn't know when to shut up. As for the Tommy boy, the whiny eighth-grader, I'd give odds he's one of those wimpy kids whose Mommy drives him to the end of the driveway to wait for the bus everyday.
