From yesterday:

"Italian-boen French singer-songwriter; former model; wife of the current French President"

I'm somewhat surprised that none of the 48 players reported this. I've fixed the typo.

Kenesaw Mountain Landis

is defined as

American hurist; judge; first commissioner of pro baseball

I have never heard of a hurist, and suspect it should be a jurist

Irish Thoroughbred racehorse; steeplechaser


Leon Trotsky
Arkle
Jacques Delors
Red Rum
Toni Morrison
Arianna Huffington

Both Arkle and Red Rum were Irish born horses and steeplechasers.Unfair to have both appear in that question, even if Red Rum has a seperate question.

I added 'steeplechaser' to Red Rum. In theory that should keep the two (Red Rum & Arkle) from turning up together.

These problems come up from time to time. I try to be somewhat consistent in my wording, but I miss some cases, obviously. Thanks for pointing this out.

In case other players also ran across this entry, William Feilding will be replaced due to ambiguity and obscurity. He will still show up in a set in today's game due to being cached.

The answer for Edward G. Robinson says he was American only. He was born in Romania and didn't come to America until he was 10 years old. His real name was Emmanuel Goldberg. I should think that he would correctly be referred to as a Romanian-American.
