    Brainy congressman beats 'Jeopardy' computer
    U.S. Rep. Rush Holt of New Jersey proves humans can rise to challenge

    TRENTON, N.J. — Turns out all it took to top Watson, the "Jeopardy"-winning computer, was a rocket scientist.
    U.S. Rep. Rush Holt of New Jersey is just such a scientist.
    The success of Holt — a five-time champion during the trivia show's original run 35 years ago — topped the IBM computer Monday night in a "Jeopardy" exhibition match of congressmen vs. machine held at a Washington hotel.
