An Unexpected Tribute to a Loyal Solver

Crossword solvers are creatures of habit. Whether it’s a Sunday morning thing or an every day thing, you have your certain puzzle, which you solve in your certain spot, with a certain drink in hand.

The Washington Post unintentionally disrupted that routine for many solvers last Wednesday when they accidentally left the crossword out of the paper.

One solver in particular, though, found it to be a most appropriate interruption.

A man named Sidney Schulman was a devotee of the Washington Post crossword, and his great-grandson Justin Green reached out to The Post‘s Design Director, Greg Manifold, to share this story:

There are moments in life when pieces fall into place so perfectly, it seems meant to be. This must’ve been one of those times.
