Hey all – pretty easy puzzle for most of you last week, and I’m already late posting this thanks to a deadline for my actual job, so I’ll be brief. Here’s the picture:
The long answers contained, across word breaks, the common shorthand ways people often refer to five of America’s top national newspapers – the Los Angeles Times (LAT), USA Today (USAT), the New York Times (NYT), the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), and the Washington Post (WaPo). The trick was then to see that the grid also contained scrambled (or “shuffled”) versions of these groups of letters, with one extra. The extra letters, taken in grid order, spelled out the meta answer, INKER.
Up next is puzzle #45, “Good News, You’re In the Right Place.”
The answer to the metapuzzle is a book of the Gospel. Submit your answer using the contact form by Monday, January 20 at 11 p.m. Pacific Time. I’ll post the solution, and a new puzzle, next Tuesday. (Unless, like this week, I don’t because I’m a liar!)
