Sometimes Wise

by Steve Bachman

This "mid-week level" puzzle, with an original albeit quirky theme and an unusually low word count for a themed puzzle, is modified slightly from the version its constructor posted (3/5/2015), and (spoiler) later analyzed (3/11/2015), on his own blog. We are delighted to share it here.

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. Steve thanks John Child, Brent Hartzell, Martin Herbach, Peter Leopold, and Carl Voss and yours truly from our group for both encouragement and critical analysis as this puzzle was developed.
