Puzzle Notes

Dear subscribers: 

Brendan Emmett Quigley's "With Pride" is 2/5 in difficulty. Perfect way to beat the heat.

Meanwhile, if you'll be at the Lollapuzzoola crossword tournament in Manhattan on Saturday, August 10, come say hi to the AVCX. We'll be floating around. More info on the tournament here: http://www.bemoresmarter.com/ 

Oh, and we're gearing up for our celebrity puzzle series, which is filling out quite nicely with famous names, and should arrive by early fall. We've got some pretty famous fans, as it turns out. There's still time to add to the roster, though - if you happen to be acquainted with anyone who might qualify as a celebrity and who likes crosswords, drop us a line and we'll pair them up with an AVCX constructor to write a puzzle for the series.
