I missed last week's deadline in a good cause. My wife and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary -- away from any computers, in a lovely place across some water from where we live (I'm being coy about it because I may want to use it for a future headline puzzle).
Two weeks ago, I posted a puzzle whose solution was...
PASS THE SCREECH CROSBIE IS NEWFOUNDLAND LT GOVERNOR
HOUSING DEMOLITION PROTESTERS CLASH WITH POLICE IN NEW ORLEANS
ZUMA SAYS NO WORD FROM PROSECUTORS ON GRAFT
QUEEN NOW OLDEST MONARCH IN BRITAINS HISTORY
EIGHT GLASSES OF WATER A DAY AND OTHER MEDICAL MYTHS
KEY = MONEY, SETTING = PURSE, HAT = WALLET
The new puzzle is this:
LTJ FKM ZWNJLDLXC CL NLZAIYDKCI XLJ EFLE PWOI VLPWMKG AJLFPIZD

A newspaper in the cafeteria caught my eye, running this story from the Globe and Mail (our Ontario paper that tries to masquerade as a national one). I was wondering how soon people would start to compare Kenya today with Shake Hands With The Devil Rwanda. Ouch.
