Calling Agatha Christie?

The Puzzler

RAY: Here's the answer. Left-handed American boys who learn to play baseball catch with the glove on the right hand. So, if you're a lefty and something is thrown to you, you might instinctively reach up with your right hand and catch it. But the American who reached up with his right hand betrayed the fact that he was a lefty-- and he was the one who wielded the knife in his left hand and stabbed the servant.

TOM: You're going to get so much mail from this puzzler.

RAY: Don't send it to me. Send it to Jason Margolese. Who's our winner?

TOM: The winner this week is Brother Jacob Gobiak from Conception Abbey in Conception, Missouri. And for having his answer selected at random, Brother Jacob will get a 26-dollar gift certificate from the Shameless Commerce Division of, where he can pick up our latest collection of disrespectful car songs, Born Not To Run.

RAY: Congratulations, Brother Jacob!
