Puzzle Notes

Hey folks! We've got a very fun one for you this week. You may be familiar with our good pal Paolo Pasco, who is talented at altogether too many things, one of which is writing cryptic crosswords. If you'd like more Paoloesque content after solving his puzzle, maybe follow him on Twitter, check out his blog Grids These Days, or try one of the cryptics he's been writing for The New Yorker! Next week Nathan Curtis is up, then another mini, then some surprises.
