Washington Post swan song

Nobody answered my question in the last post about when the last Washington Post Sunday crossword would appear, so I dug up the answer myself: Today's is the last one, so next weekend we'll be short one crossword. The replacement is, I believe, Merl Reagle's puzzle, already a required part of my crossword diet.

Thanks to the many crossword constructors whose entertaining creations have appeared in the Post, and of course thanks to editor Fred Piscop for his years of work on the Post puzzle.

If you hanker for more of Fred's editing style, try these volumes of Washington Post Sunday crosswords.
