On Tuesday, Katherine misread a medical question. She caught her error, but not before wasting the 50/50. Good that she got another medical question and redeemed herself.

50K: Knew it wasn't heart. Lungs are usually heart &-lung, & don't always succeed even today. I'd have 50/50'd.

100K: There's a famous Mexican leader who had his arm shot off, & the Americans dug it up & paraded it artound for a while, but I'm sure its Santa Anna. The same guy who was distracted from his duties by the very real Yellow (meaning part African-descent) Rose of Texas. +1
