The Week Contest
This week’s question: The Russian ambassador to the U.S. has complained that no one in Washington—including House majority and minority leaders and Vice President Mike Pence—is willing to meet and talk with him. If Ambassador Anatoly Antonov were to write a memoir about his lonely life in D.C., what title could he give it?
Last week’s contest: Former Vice President Joe Biden recently claimed that if he and President Trump were still in high school, he would have “beat the hell out of him” for disrespecting women; Trump retorted that Biden would “go down hard and fast” in any fight. If Hollywood were to make a boxing movie about two septuagenarian politicians, what would the film be called?

Laurel Wroten, Petaluma, Calif.
SECOND PLACE: “The Thrilla of the Over-the-Hilla”
