On-Air Challenge

Every answer is an anagram of a word starting with the letters, A-M. For example, if the clue is "A-M + sue," then the answer would be, "amuse."

Challenge From Last Week

From listener Peter Weiss: The names of Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton have something unusual in common. In fact, these are the only presidents in U.S. history whose names share this characteristic. What is it?

Answer: Their middle names are the last names of other presidents — Wilson and Jefferson.

Winner: Michael Luxner of Decatur, Ill.

Next Week's Challenge
