Puzzle Notes

Dear Friends:

We welcome guest constructor Amanda Rafkin this week, with an easy(ish) themeless - our 49th! 4/5 difficulty, to be specific.

Amanda is an LA-based musical theater pianist/music director and crossword constructor. She has spent the majority of quarantine staring at CrossFire, watching Golden Girls, and solving crossword puzzles in an effort to stave off hypochondriasis. If you're looking to add to your solving rotation, she posts a new puzzle daily to her website Brain Candy. And as we also plugged last week, if you want to feel good about yourself AND get your hands on some fantastic puzzles, be sure to check out the Grids for Good project. For a donation of $10 or more to a COVID or BLM-related charity, you can get a pack of 42 original puzzles sent right to your inbox. For more of Amanda's crossword ramblings, you can find her on Twitter @AmandaRafkin.

Be well,

Ben and the AVCX crew
