WNU Editor: In the past two years I have cut back on my travelling, preferring to work from home where I could spend more time with the GF, her family, and my mother. One of the routines that I have gotten into is to watch Jeopardy with my mother every Tuesday and Thursday. Even though she is 92, my mom is a big fan of the show (she watches every show), and this winter I found myself enjoying quality time with her watching the show to the point that I can now say that Alex Trebek is a fixture in my life with my mom between 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM. That is why the the prospect of him no longer being there is hard to swallow. My prayers are with him and his family that he will be able to defeat this horrible disease.
