Going Gentile Into That Good Night

by George Barany, Noam Elkies, Michael Hanko, and Arthur Rothstein

This Thursday-level puzzle was released in mid-February 2013 at a very busy time for all four of us, but some news just begs for memorialization in crossword form.

Click here to view or download the puzzle in PDF format; here to download it as a puz file; here to download it as an ipuz file [requires the free Puzzazz app to solve]; here to solve the puzzle interactively (thanks to Jim Horne); here for the solution. We thank Marcia Brott, Brent Hartzell, Martin Herbach, and Tom Pepper for astute beta testing.  While proof-reading our puzzle, we became aware (spoiler) of an earlier appearance of 56-Across in a crossword puzzle, one written by Judge Victor Fleming for the May 4, 2005 New York Times. Click here to view that puzzle, and here for its solution.
