[after commercial break]
(Alex: There was a bit of confusion on my part...because I inadvertently added a word while I was looking back at the clue. Sheryl gave me a response and I didn't acknowledge her response immediately. We had said "this Missouri city" in the clue and "Kansas City" was correct, and she waited probably thought she was wrong, so she added "Kansas" and I ruled her incorrect at that point. We think that's a little unfair, so we're going to give her back her money and the $400 for a correct response.)
