Don't Worry, Be Happy

by Michael Shteyman / Edited by Will Shortz

This crossword puzzle was published in the New York Times on Wednesday, April 21, 2004. My only contribution was to suggest a title (NYT published puzzles are untitled, except on Sunday), and with Michael's permission, share the puzzle with students in my organic chemistry class since I thought the theme would resonate with them, and working the puzzle might be a fun way to unwind from end-of-semester stresses.
