Today's AVCX+ is by Paolo Pasco, hot on the heels of his incredible performance at the ACPT this past weekend. Paolo's puzzle today is a 66-word themeless titled "Mister 305." When asked about the difficulty of this puzzle, Paolo simply replied, "Better do your homework babito." We'll leave it to you to decipher that when you solve.
Paolo has been pretty stressed over crosswords in the months up to and including 4/2/2023, so he's proud to report that within an hour of writing this he'll be in a jacuzzi, letting the stress melt away and not thinking about puzzles even once.
