And in the end … / News quiz

And in the end … This is Chicago Public Square’s final 2023 edition. Back Jan. 2.
But catch continual news updates and commentary through the holidays on the Square Facebook page …
 … where, for instance, yesterday you would have received word of ex-Chicago City Council member Ed Burke’s conviction on federal corruption charges.
If you’re not a Facebook member, you can still see those posts—just by tapping the X in the corner of that nagging “See more on Facebook” popup.

Now, the moment you’ve been waiting for. Here’s our year-end news quiz, devised by The Conversation’s quizmaster, past Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions winner Fritz Holznagel.
If you get more than 10 out of 12 answers right, consider yourself superior to Square columnist Charlie Meyerson …
 … although he confesses to having accidentally tapped one correct answer before consciously making a choice.

While you’re in tapping mode. Consider backing Square before the end of the year in the Chicago Reader’s Best of Chicago poll …
 … with two votes—for Best Email Newsletter and Best Independent Website or Blog.

Thank you. This service is free for all because of generous contributions from a relatively few readers (11%, to be precise) who help cover rising production and delivery costs.
On the Legion of Chicago Public Squarians page, you’ll find the roster of those who’ve chosen to have their names published.
You can join their honored ranks for as little as $1, once, here.

Happy New Year, one and all.
