I enjoyed the puzzle too, but on days like this, I really hate their online puzzle solving app.

I stumbled on the answer quickly so the rest came pretty easily. Sometimes you think like the constructor and others you are on a different planet.

I also solve the daily puzzles online. It’s frustrating that WSJ does not allow us to use Across Lite or Puzzazz for this type of puzzle.

Jeremy,
Somebody on this blog shared this website with me a few months ago. All the WSJ puzzles in across lite. I'm saving money on toner, for sure!

This was a very cleverly constructed puzzle!
