Speaking of blowing, if you were awake at all last week, you should be able to blow through this week’s questions with little resistance. Have fun.

1) A professional basketball player came out as gay last week. What team did he play for this year?

2) Governor for life Branstad took a sideswipe at what potential GOP senate candidate when he said “We don’t need another congressman in the senate.”?

3) At the White House correspondents dinner Saturday, Pres. Obama had a suggestion as to who the GOP could start their minority outreach with. Who is that?

4) Little hoopla was made a couple of weeks ago when this future major baketball star came out a couple days before the draft. Who was it?

5) What magazine publisher endorsed Mark Sanford in this weeks election for US District 1 representative in South Carolina?

6) The FDA approved sale of the morning after pill to women over what age, even though this still does not comply with a judge’s ruling on the matter?

7) In what state did a 5 year old boy shoot and kill his 2 year old sister?

8) This state became #10 on the list of marriage equality. What is it?

5) Hustler magazine owner Larry Flint

6) age 15 or above can purchase plan B.

11) West Liberty

12) Hyatt Hotels (noted for union busting.)

13) The building that fell down last week killing at least 500 garment workers.
