Post by Bob cruise director »

This week's meta is titled Poetic Justice by Mike Shenk

The answer to this week's contest is a job in the legal profession.

Good luck with the grid and the meta

On shore… Grabbed a chaise lounge. Ordered a Guinness. Cracked open a book. Basking in the sun. Life is good.

That may be my quickest solve ever!
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.
