CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

The New York Daily News reports:

A “Jeopardy!” fan is making history as the first transgender contestant to qualify for the show’s Tournament of Champions. Amy Schneider, the reigning nine-time “Jeopardy!” champion with $343,200 in the bank, began her winning streak earlier this month, after dethroning five-day champion Andrew He.

The fifth victory also qualified her for the show’s “Tournament of Champions,” an all-star competition that happens annually, featuring the best contestants from the previous year. The Oakland, Calif.-based engineering manager said that she has been a fan of the show for as long as she can remember.
