Tori goes DDH right away in the center of Fictional Females...& eventually finds the sole one in this J! Rd. behind the $800 Short Story w/ $1,600 across the board so far. She goes for this clue's face value:

We'll model the writing style on the distinctive voice of this Southern author of The Bear.

"Who is William Faulkner?"...correct for $2,400 & the temporary outright lead. But when they go to recess, Leonard's slightly in front w/ $2,600 & Jordan has $2,200, so all three are currently separated by $200 a head.

"So" Be It, Leonard SWEEPS that category right away to take first place w/ $8,600...but Tori uncovers her second of the DDs under the $2K bit of Recent History w/ $8K & is only $00 behind Leonard. For a new total of $11K for her & the lead back:

In Oct. 2001, Congress passed this act to deter & punish terrorism.

"What is the Freedom Act?"...but it was the Patriot. However, she does have the DDS once choosing the $1,600 spot on The Endangered Species List & back she is in first w/ 13 G's; Leonard's slightly dropped to $8,200. Again, for an additional three G-spots:

Killing this seabird's bad luck, & yet the short-tailed one's on the Endangered Species List.
