Since several people have sent me this link, I thought I’d share: the U.S. Geological Survey is have a “Spring Mega Sale” through June 4, with big markdowns on tens of thousands of maps, charts, and other publications. Many items are of midcentury vintage, and some are as priced as low as $1! So much beautiful stuff here if you like maps.
WORDPLAY WEDNESDAY! Take the last name of a TV character, and the first name of his lifelong best friend. (There’s a small cheat here in that you have to use a nickname.) Anagram the two words together to get the name of powerful real-life political figure of the same era as the show. (Like if you could mix up FLINTSTONE and BARNEY to make HUBERT HUMPHREY instead of, um, NIFTY SNOT ENABLER.)
Edited to add: I guess this was pretty hard, given the lack of takers. The political figure was a Cabinet member, if that helps.
Edited again: Yup, that did it. SCHALAAY solved it here. Well done, this one was probably too hard.
