    Glad to see that someone else in the universe has figured out how to make a great CtS (Grant’s expertise here is a given). A quick check confirmed my memory that, other than Grant’s massive supply, only Dr. S published one here before this week.

    Thank you Murat Can Tonta for the CtS this week.

      I would argue that this Cross the Streams from Murat is better than the bottom 90% of my CtS output combined. I was very pleased with how his contributions (and Thomas’s, for that matter) required me to think in ways I hadn’t thought of thinking before. I’d actually postulate that my best CtS puzzles are the hybrids. 🙂

    Love how the bottom rows interact with the right cols.
