Daily Bread for 1.22.14

Good morning.

Wednesday brings a high of eleven, and a likelihood of morning snow with accumulation of less than one inch. Sunrise is 7:19 AM and sunset 4:55 AM. The moon’s a waning gibbous with 65% of its visible disk illuminated.

At 8 AM, Downtown Whitewater’s board members meet, and at 5 PM there’s a meeting of the Community Development Authority.

It’s the 41st anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade.

Also on this day, in 1998, the Unabomber pleads guilty – “…in a Sacramento, California, courtroom, Theodore J. Kaczynski pleads guilty to all federal charges against him, acknowledging his responsibility for a 17-year campaign of package bombings attributed to the “Unabomber.” ”

Today’s a notable anniversary (from 1964) for cheese-makers, too:

1964 – World’s Largest Block of Cheese Produced
On this date The world’s largest cheese of the time was manufactured in Wisconsin. The block of cheddar was produced from 170,000 quarts of milk by the Wisconsin Cheese Foundation specifically for the 1964 New York World’s Fair. It weighed 34,665 pounds (17.4 tons). The cheese was consumed in 1965 at the annual meeting of the Wisconsin Cheesemakers Association at Eau Claire. A replica is displayed in Neilsville in the specially designed “Cheesemobile“, a semi-tractor trailer in which the original cheese toured. [Source: American Profile, December 16, 2001]

Here’s Wednesday’s Puzzability game:

This Week’s Game — January 20-24
Alternative Musicians
Some people can really sing their hearts out. For each day this week, we began with the name of a solo singer who has won a Record of the Year Grammy Award. Then we removed any spaces and punctuation and deleted every other letter, leaving just the odd letters. The day’s clue shows those remaining letters in order.
Michael Jackson
What to Submit:
Submit the singer’s name (as “Michael Jackson” in the example) for your answer.
