It will all be OK in the end. If it isn't OK, it isn't the end.

No.

I had to be put down after I ran amok.

THE Golem.

I'm supposedly related to his maker.

I wasn't sure whether there was more than one in Jewish folklore, but there are scads of them in D&D. And they're not all clay, even. That's where I first heard of them/it.

Someone else is welcome to take the next spin. If no one has by tomorrow, I'll come up with a new unknown.

If I'd known I were in a popular game I would have picked someone else.

I've also read this Caldecott winner, J-Lo, but D&D is where I first heard the term.

Pretty cool you can trace your ancestry back like that.

Someone in the family was married to the Maharal's daughter or granddaughter, but I'm pretty sure it was a collateral branch to me. I'm grateful to my cousin the genealogist for digging up things like that.

I was a Greek born in Istanbul, though its name had not yet been changed officially from Constantinople. It still had not when I emigrated, but it had by the time I died in New York City.

No, but if you played the six degrees of separation game using Onassis and myself, one short way to link us would be through the word "tycoon."

No, but I knew Anthony Quinn.

Are you connected with the theatre/films?

Actually, I'm almost certain that you're Elia Kazan but I'm about to go out for several hours so if I'm correct someone else is very welcome to take my place.

Elia Kazan is correct.

FWIW, Kazan's last film was called The Last Tycoon, and Anthony Quinn (who Kazan direct in Viva Zapata!) starred in The Greek Tycoon.

Which was alleged to have been about Onassis.

I remember a time, back in the late 90s, when I thought nonsense like this mattered somewhat more than I do now. Now I see well-educated people yammering about the birth control choices of their daughters, or gay marriage, and I think they are morons.

You'd have a blue Christmas without here.
Hannukah, too, won't be much without here.
Arguments, ads, advice, and a strange joie de vie,
Where would you get them if you weren't here to read?

And when the new year starts, you'll need here.
For floods, elections, and verdicts you'll be here.
You'll be posting all right, so won't you please just subscribe?
So I'll have a true, true Christmas.
