The answers are tucked at the bottom of each post (with the context available via hyperlink). We will know – and tell everybody – if you scrolled down and illicitly claimed you went 12 for 12. Real talk. 

Your possible answers are:

Fleisher, founder, Vidocq Society; Alisha Grant, Wister Elementary School parent; Patrick Lobo, Penn for Trump; Ryan Manion Borek, State of the Union attendee; Mitesh Patel, Penn's Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics; Brian A.
