[Today I would like to welcome Crypticsue to the review panel. She becomes our first lady blogger, and will be appearing from time to time, other commitments allowing. Her next post will be Monday’s daily cryptic.]
This Saturday’s puzzle was just right – not too difficult, a couple of tricky ones if you didn’t spot such things as the placing of a comma or a capital I (20a and 26a) and even the chance to learn a historical word (20a)
I am torn between a 3 * or 2* for difficulty (after 40 years I may find some puzzles easier than those with less experience) but definitely a 3* for enjoyment.
