Abstract: We show that if every set of reals of size contains a meager-to-one continuous image of a set that cannot be covered by less than meager sets, then there exists a null (Lebesgue measure zero) subset of the plane that meets every nonnull rectangle . The antecedent is satisfied, e.g., if Cohen reals are added to a model of the continuum hypothesis.
