I guess the acrostic is a thing of the past, and I can’t say that its demise was a surprise to me. Not many readers would have been doing the puzzle, I always thought, so it probably wasn’t worth the space and cost for you to print it.

But I loved it, and admired Michael Vuolo’s work. I hope you can pass on to him my appreciation.
