Sunday Puzzle: You'll Need To Unscramble The Opposition
On-air challenge: Take two four-letter words. Rearrange the letters in each of them to make two new words that are opposites.
For example: PEON THUS --> OPEN & SHUT
Last week's challenge: Last week's challenge came from listener Peter Collins of Ann Arbor, Mich. Name a well-known city in the U.S. Two words. The second word rhymes with a word meaning "certain stories" — and the first word rhymes with something found in those stories. What city is it?
Puzzle answer: Coral Gables --> fables, moral
Puzzle winner:Russ Porter of Ridgefield, Connecticut
Next week's challenge:Think of a familiar phrase in the form "I ___ you," in which a four-letter word goes in the blank. Rearrange those letters and you'll get another familiar phrase in the form "I ___ you." Both phrases get more than half a million hits in a Google search. What phrases are these?
