There is no new puzzle this issue. If you are jonesing for a puzzle, you should still be working on the Summer Puzzle Mega Issue. There’s no way you are done yet, and the deadline isn’t until September 15th, 2009. You could win stuff, so get to it!
However, for those of you who have been waiting on pins and needles to have the correct answers to a couple of recent puzzles revealed, it is time to put you out of your misery. Solutions are provided below. Certain people have most decidedly not been waiting for these solutions, though, because they confidently and correctly provided their own. Each will be receiving a SpecGram magnet of their choosing for their efforts.
Congratulations to all the winners, and especially to Sara Kessler, who has surely by now amassed the largest private collection of SpecGram magnets in Israel.
In the next regular issue, we’ll have another Rasmus Rask Puzzle, from linguistic puzzler Lila Rosa Grau.
