Got it (and I did finish the grid, albeit in the WSJ browser which I hate!). Might see a record turnout this week.

On shore! And thanks again for all the kind birthday wishes.
Good luck, fellow Muggles! I'm happy to give nudges, but only if you're still stuck on Sunday. Just send me a PM and tell me what you've tried so far.

Um....I'll say I'm on shore. Is this as apparent as I think or does it go deeper and we're all making bad assumptions?
