A Man Who Loves Buster Keaton and Buster Posey

by George Barany

This "mid-week level" puzzle (15x16) was created after receiving Facebook notification of the birthday of one of my cyberfriends (pictorial hint to the right), and is back-dated. No specialized knowledge the puzzle's honoree is required, although many of the answer words and/or clues were designed specifically for him. After completing the puzzle (spoiler), click here for a "midrash" that explains more about the puzzle.

We thank Christopher Adams, John Child, and Martin Herbach, none of whom know the puzzle's honoree, for beta testing the puzzle and ensuring that it was fair.
