I’ll take “Potent Quotables” for $1,000, Alex …

“Happy Thanksgiving, ladies and gentlemen. You know, in spite of what America and the rest of the world is experiencing right now, there are many reasons to be thankful. There are more and more people extending helpful hands to do a kindness to their neighbors, and that’s a good thing. Keep the faith. We’re going to get through all of this, and we will be a better society because of it.”


Alex Trebek, the late host of the long-running game show “Jeopardy!,” had a Thanksgiving message for viewers, urging them to “be thankful” and “keep the faith.”
The message was recorded earlier this year as part of the Thanksgiving Day episode. “Jeopardy!” tweeted the clip Thursday morning, ahead of the planned broadcast.
The beloved TV host died November 8, less than two years after announcing he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

Alex Trebek and Jeopardy! have been omnipresent cultural touchstones for nearly four decades, but all things end. That said, America endures, even in the face of a vicious plague and an even more vicious wannabe dictator.

And through all that, Trebek’s grace and decency have shined through. And they do here again for us, one last time, when we need them the most.

RIP, Alex. I don’t know about the question, but you definitely got the answer right.
