Ahoy, Fellow Cruciverbalists! I've got good news and bad news. The good news is that next week I'll be posting not one, but two editions of MGWCC. The bad news is that I won't be posting one today. Too much Christmas activity (traveling, buying gifts, watching my two-year-old nephew tear through acres of wrapping paper) and I wasn't able to get this week's puzzle done and up.
So here's the MGWCC holiday schedule: #030 will go up on Tuesday, Dec. 30th, 2008, and, then #031 will go up on Friday, Jan. 2nd, 2009. At which time we'll all be back on the normal schedule and never speak of this lapse again. Results from #029 will also be announced Tuesday (see Joon Pahk's writeup if you want to see the answers before then).
But let no one say I left you completely puzzle-less today. Here's something: anagram one of the fifty largest cities in Michigan (here's a list) to get one of the most popular TV shows of all time. Hint: they're both exactly one word, so you know it's not Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, etc.
What the heck, let's make it a contest: e-mail me the answer at firstname.lastname@example.org and one winner chosen at random wins an autographed book. Please put the contest answer words (city + TV show) in the subject line of your e-mail.
Hope everyone had a great holiday season filled with materialistic overconsumption. See you on Tuesday!
