On-Air Challenge

You are given some quotes with the ending, "Tom ________." The word that goes in the blank is a synonym for "said" that completes the statement in a punny way. For example, given, "'That was the best all-night dance party ever,' Tom ________," the answer would be "raved."

Challenge From Last Week

Take the name "Pensacola," remove one letter and rearrange the letters that remain to get the first and last name of a famous person in American history. Who is it?

Answer: Al Capone

Winner: Michael Eckman of Bloomington, Minn.

Next Week's Challenge

From Rich Silvestri of Valley Stream, N.Y.: Name an item often found on a desk. It's a hyphenated word. Add an "S" to the beginning of each part, and you'll get two synonyms. What's the item?
