We had a couple of readers who sent in their guesses and, as it turns out, the piece reads better with some of those included. So, we're going to table the results until next Tuesday. If you still want to try your hand at guessing, then the quiz is here. And, whether you did the quiz already or not, if you're up for explaining your guess for one pair, or two, or three, please send that here. (Z)
