Re(8): Listener 4436 Clean-up Operation by Aragon IP: 188.8.131.52 Posted on February 26, 2017 at 12:51:55 PM by Andy Stewart
We're so accustomed to puzzles on cultural or historical themes that need Google for their completion, that I found it a pleasant change to have a self-contained puzzle. There were several PDMs throughout my solving. I briefly wondered why a Shawnee might be a perpetrator, until I spotted POSTMAN, and at the end I realised that my lower case 'i' at the end of 42d needed inverting. I appreciated the non-word left in 43a after erasure of clashes; it was a considerate hint to the column that needed amending.
Altogether a very thoughtfully crafted puzzle. Replies:
