COMING NEXT WEEK. . .
* What's a five-letter word for "'Engineered to ____' (Quicken Loans slogan)"?
* Patron Puzzle #6, which will be delivered exclusively to Patreon supporters ($5 or more per month), is a Snake Crisscross, a puzzle type which (as far as I can tell) was invented by my good friend Craig Kasper. Crisscross words read from left to right or top to bottom as you'd expect; snake words read along bendy paths in the grid. Every letter is used in one snake word and one or two crisscross words; there are 60 words in all.

Until next time, yappy solving!
