LAT Thu. 11/12 Kelsey Blakley

Mitochondrial references aside, I don't have much good to say about this Thursday offering except that I cannot believe the abbreviation for turnpike is TPKE.  Why would a silent, final e ever be used in an abbreviation?  Yet TPKE is in dictionaries, and I know I have seen it used in the real world.   :-\

I have an issue with 64A.  A fingerprint is NOT a DNA sequence.  Clue-FAIL.

You're right, but DNA is sometimes referred to as a "human fingerprint."  That is probably so because, like fingerprits, each person's DNA is said to be different; and, like fingerprints, DNA strands are used to identify people.
