No more WashPost Sundays
edited April 2008
The Washington Post now runs Merle Reagle's CrosSynergy Syndicate puzzle on Sundays. No more WP exclusive puzzle.
Oh - too bad. :( I just got a customer inquiry about this. Thanks for letting us know.
By the way do you have any kind of news link for this? An announcement I can point users to if they ask about it?
When I couldn't load Sunday's puzzle, I went to washingpost.com, got very confused at the sight of a puzzle I'd already done, and figured I'd get the real story from
. Sure enough,
her entry for 4/6
says, "And then there were five. No more Sunday Washington Post puzzle to enjoy—Washingtonians will now be getting Merl Reagle's crossword, which I (and you, if you like fun crosswords) already solve in its Philadelphia Inquirer incarnation."
Google reveals there was also
something about it
in the WP itself. They don't explain about dropping the old puzzle, only about picking up Merl's.
Not only that, they don't seem to have a .puz option any more. You either use the Java applet or download a PDF. Weird, since the .puz obviously already exists for the Philadelphia Inquirer.
