After three very devious Listener puzzles in a row, this week’s – “Past and Present” by Emkay ; seems relatively straightforward. At least, after fifteen minutes’ work I’ve made a good start on the top portion of the puzzle, including solving two of the theme words, and nothing inexplicable has caught my attention yet.
Later: I started the puzzle during my lunch break on Friday, and finished it during my long commute home, finding the two-word phrase that finishes the puzzle just as the BART train was pulling in to the West Oakland station. No big surprises, just a nice straightforward puzzle.
So now what am I supposed to do with my weekend? I may be forced to actually spend some time writing.
