Congratulations to Brandon Ruff!

Brandon is the winner of today's Women's History Month trivia contest. He correctly identified intrepid Victorian-era journalist Nellie Bly (real name: Elizabeth Cochrane Seaman) as the woman who traveled around the world in 72 days in 1890.
Bly's life story is fascinating. She once campaigned for the reform of insane asylums by going undercover as a mentally-ill person--an early example of the undercover journalist!

Enjoy your cookies, Brandon!
