Puzzle #30 Solution

Quick post this morning to reveal the solution to last week’s puzzle; release of the next puzzle is unfortunately delayed.

Last week I asked for a four-letter word in a puzzle called “show me a sign.” There were four long answers, but they didn’t seem very themey (because they weren’t.) But there was one clue with a *: 13d “Color of a ‘Spot’ on Jupiter” = RED. The idea here was to envision all the letters of the word “Stop” in the grid in red. A subtle hint, and a lot of solvers commented that they didn’t really forward-solve this puzzle; rather the puzzle title and the star on the clue for RED led to a guess that the answer would be STOP, which it was.

I will hopefully have time to get Puzzle #31 up later today. Stay tuned …
