The Puzzler


RAY: Here's the answer. The state is New York State. And the city is Stamford, Connecticut.

TOM: So no matter where you go you hit New York State.

RAY: Exactly. If you leave Stamford, Connecticut, and you go north, you actually hit New York State because there's a little bit of New York State that sticks out into Connecticut. And if you go west from Stamford, you clearly hit New York State. If you go south you'll hit Long Island. And if you go east you'll hit the far east end of Long Island.

TOM: All of which is New York State!

RAY: Do we have a winner?

TOM: We certainly do. Our winner this week is Kathy Foley from Broomfield, Colorado, and for having her answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Kathy's going to get a $26 gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at cartalk.com, with which she can get a copy of our latest music collection, Stairway to Heapdom.

RAY: Congratulations, Kathy.
