This is a long overdue expression of appreciation for your Puzzler page and those wonderful puzzlers, Barry Tunick and Sylvia Bursztyn. Their feel for language, their clever humor, their avoidance of a dull, lumbering vocabulary of crossword-dictionary words and the precision of their definitions are superb.
During a period of exile deep in the heart of a large Southwestern city, which shall be nameless (I believe it was named after a long-running TV series), I was unable to find puzzles even approaching the caliber of T & B's little gems, just one more reason for falling prostrate and kissing the ground on my return to Los Angeles Times country.
Please don't ever let them go. ELIZABETH WILSON
