Puzzle Notes

Hi friends: 

Francis Heaney, who hustles every time, has this week's puzzle, a 5/5 called "Moneychangers." Best of luck with it!

We received 109 submissions for last week's light meta in Byron Walden's puzzle. Nice work to all who found it! (See the attached solution, or read the Crossword Fiend review for an explanation). The winner of the contest, drawn at random from among the correct entries, is Nick G. Congrats, Nick.

This is tangential to crosswords, but I wrote an obituary for Prince (+ reflection on rock music and race, topics in my other professional life); if that's your thing, you can read it here.

Take me with you,

Ben and the AVCX crew [, @AVCXWord]
