Puzzle Notes

Dear Friends:

We're excited to be back with a puzzle from the constructing duo of Rafael Musa and Kate Chin Park! It's a 70-word themeless titled "Can We Solve It? Yes We Can!" and pegged at a difficulty of "Breezy but sassy."

Rafa says: "I'm so excited to finally have my published collab debut with crossword icon Kate! She brings the best energy to everything she touches, and it's an honor to count her as a collaborator and friend. All the good clues in this puzzle are hers (literally so! she wrote them all!)"

Kate says: "What an absolute honor to share a byline with my friend, and Undisputed King of Universal Themelesses, Rafa! We've been crossword collaborators for over a year now, largely powered by Rafa's magical banger-grid-creation abilities. I'm so happy to be published together at last!"

Happy solving, and we'll see you next week.

Chris, Sid, Ada, Max, Quiara & the expanded AVCX crew
