Last Week’s Challenge: From listener Dale Shuger of New York City: Think of a common four-letter adjective. Then take its opposite in French. (It’s a French word that everyone knows.) Say the two words out loud, one after the other, and you’ll name a famous film director. Who is it?
Answer: Truffaut (true and faux)
Winner: Brent Jeffers of Pullman, Wash.
