Puzzle Notes

Hey friends! Did you know that our team of cryptic editors are not only excellent editors, but also hella good cryptic constructors? I see by your show of hands that MOST of you did, in fact, know that, but for the rest of you, I give you this week's cryptic by Nate Cardin as supporting evidence. Nate will also be back in two weeks holding down the editor chair once again with a puzzle by Rebecca Bridge. Enjoy this week's puzzle, and see y'all then!
