Presidential trivia part 4

Before getting into this week’s newsletter, let me apologize for the delayed publication of the last newsletter. The delay was due to technical problems. It contained some proposition bet tips for the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, it was sent out on Monday, the day after the game. I do hope you followed my advice in the February 3 newsletter to bet on the Bengals +4.5.
