Our Fair City

The Puzzler

RAY: Here's the answer. He wasn't a citizen because there was no America when he was born in Cambridge. The United States was not a country yet.

TOM: Oh!

RAY: And Massachusetts was not a state. It was indeed a colony of England. So he was a subject of the English Crown. Do we have a winner?

TOM: Of course we have a winner. The winner this week is Mark Grieve from Macomb, Illinois. And for having his answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Mark's going to get a $26 gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at cartalk.com, with which he can get a set of Car Talk reusable shopping bags.

RAY: Which are, as we speak, being ridiculed at fine supermarkets everywhere.

TOM: Right. Congratulations, Mark!
