Will Shortz has once again paid me the compliment of using a puzzle I wrote as the NPR Weekend Edition Sunday listener challenge. (He also did me the favor of mentioning this blog on the radio, which is adding a number of first-timers to my literally tens of readers.)
The puzzle aired this morning. If you missed it, you can listen to it here or read a transcript here.
I presented Will with the puzzle last Sunday over breakfast at the annual convention of the National Puzzlers' League. For the full story, scroll down a couple of posts to the NPL convention trip report, entitled "Enigmarama," or click here.
Since the NPR challenge is open for business until Thursday afternoon, I won't say anything else about the puzzle for now, other than that Will Shortz is the same in person as he is on the radio: smart, friendly, and fun to be around.
Now get solving, America.
