You may now be thinking, “Crossword puzzle? WHAT crossword puzzle?” There are two possible explanations: 1) It’s in the mail and you simply haven’t yet received it; or 2) I have unaccountably failed to send you one. If it’s answer 2, please don’t feel slighted — my level of organization is poor even on the best of days, so I’ve probably mislaid your address, if I ever had it to begin with. So here’s the deal: ANYBODY I know who has made it to this blog and is reading these words is welcome to receive one of these puzzles. Just send me your address and I’ll pop one in the mail. In any case, don’t look at the solution until you’ve given the puzzle a fair shot (you are of course free to disregard my plea and look anyway).
