Suitguy is not bitter.

feels he represents the many educated and rational onlookers who believe that the hysterical denouncement of lay scepticism is both unwarranted and counter-productive

The problem, then, is that such calls do not address an opposition audience so much as they signal virtue. They talk past those who need convincing. They ignore actual facts and counterargument. And they are irreparably smug.

Congrats, Mike to a fellow winner tonight - I missed Q 11 (I thought it was the Iron Lady) but had an extra life and knew Q 12 to cross over the finish line.

I've seen Hamilton but it is an obscure plot point. I had eliminated The Last Five Years, so I lost a coin flip.
