The Stickler Weekly 257

Thanks for the feedback on my NYT cryptic submission. The process of publishing it on the website made me think that I hadn’t actually met Will Shortz basic requirements, which is why he wasn’t more positive about it. Your respsonses also indicated a lack of flair and guile, which probably resulted from the dumbing-down that I felt I needed to do. I might actually have another go.

The Stickler for this week is now available. Please select your preferred solving format.

The solution to this puzzle will appear next week.

    Yes David, couldn’t quite put my finger on it.
    That is what was lacking – the Flair & Guile.

    Well, it reminded me how much I appreciate our weekly dose of guile and flair, thank you David!
