On-Air Challenge: In honor of the start of the Supreme Court's new term, think of five words related to a given category whose first letters spell out "court." For example, if the category was girls' names, the answers could be (C)onnie, (O)lga, (U)ma, (R)achel and (T)ina.

Last Week's Challenge from listener Mike Reiss: Think of a 10-letter occupation ending in "ER." The first four letters can be rearranged to spell something that person would study, and the next four letters can be rearranged to spell something else that person would study. What is the occupation?

Answer: "Astronomer" includes "star" and "moon."

Winner: Clifford Cox from Dexter, Mich.

Next Week's Challenge: Think of a common one-word entrée and dessert. When you insert the name of the entrée into the dessert's name, it will read as a certain meal. Name the entrée, dessert and meal.
