Another misfit posting from yours truly:
Last week’s challenge came from listener Peter Collins, of Ann Arbor, Mich. Think of a well-known author (9,6). Change the first letter of the last name and anagram those six letters to spell a word. Now read everything together — the author’s first name plus the anagram with a letter changed of the last name — and you’ll get a certain professional athlete. Who was it?
Challenge answer - Charlotte Bronte → Charlotte Hornet
Winner - Julia Wheeler of Kansas City, Missouri.
