Contest 168: Best Offense

When Sen. John Edwards, a relative newcomer, threw his hat into the presidential ring, it raised the backles of veteran Democratic hopefuls. They met in a town in the southwest quadrant of Indiana, near the Illinois border, to design a game plan to thwart his ascendancy.

Name the town.

Results from No. 166: Good Riddance

In Contest 166, we sent you on a New Year's sabbatical to Norway's Svalvard Island after a long and stressful 2002. Congratulations to our Travel section mousepad winner, Sally Waxman of Bethesda, who not only knew the answer to our riddle-Longyearbyen-but has actually been to the spot. Says Waxman: "It's a very nice little town."
