Now, on to our final game, Lightning Fill in the Blank. Each of our players will have 60 seconds in which to answer as many fill in the blank questions as he or she can. Each correct answer now worth two points. Bill, can you give us the scores?
BILL KURTIS: Roxanne has four. Charlie has three. P. J. has two.
All right, panel, some more questions for you from the week's news. Charlie, detergent companies are now selling their product in pods, little balls of soap you throw into the washer rather than measuring it out. Well, Senator Chuck Schumer is warning that they pose a danger to the nation. How?
CHARLIE PIERCE: They're pollutants.
PIERCE: They make people lazy.
PIERCE: Because his mother used to scrub the clothes on a rock by the river.
We want to remind everybody that they can join us here most weeks at the Chase Bank Auditorium in downtown Chicago. For tickets and more information, you can go to wbez.org, or you can find a link at our website, waitwait.npr.org.
