The National Post has skipped DT 27854 and DT 27855 which were published in The Daily Telegraph on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 and Thursday, July 16, 2015.


"Uncle!" The editors at the National Post have finally beat me into submission. I admit defeat and acknowledge that I am unable to cope with the vagaries of their publication schedule.

Today they have skipped another two puzzles. The publication schedule is becoming progressively more and more erratic. I hesitate to even call it a schedule as that word implies that there is some planning and logic involved. I have visions of some wild Christmas party at the editorial offices of the National Post with editors running madly around throwing puzzles in the air with wild abandon.

So there is no review here of today's puzzle. However, you can still check out the review of the puzzle at Big Dave's Crossword Blog (the link is provided in the box above).

I invite you to leave a comment to let us know how you fared with the puzzle.

Signing off for today — Falcon
