THIS MORNING'S WORDPUZZLE...

I know this cannot be fully addressed until 8 pm, but I believe there is a major problem with one of the titles given... a wrongly placed word....

I loved the puzzles, but, I would love to know your source because according to MSN tv, there was one mispelled word. Perhaps the word I missed was another spelling.

What is the title of WP are you talking about? I noticed an incorrect word in one I did yesterday.....

The puzzle I had trouble with was Zarathustra.

I was talking about "Rhapdosy on a Theme of Paganini".... the puzzle had it "Rhapsody on a Theme BY Paganini".... eight different sources I checked had it as "... of..." rather than "...by..." got me a bit perturbed....

As with all titles translated from another language, variations exist in how the translation is made. The actual title is "Рапсодия на тему Паганини". You will find "by" and "of" used interchangeably even within the same article - and if you think about "by" implying "written by" actually makes more sense, (you wouldn't say "written of") but that's a personal bias.

Regardless, I am sorry about any extra moves it may have cost you, but I probably would have complaints either way the title was listed.

Yup Captaintony, that's the one I was talking about.
Sorry Editor, it was a really great quiz otherwise!

Didn't even think about that possibility, Sploofishy... thanks for the answer... don't worry about the extra points thing... when it's a fun puzzle, don't really care about the points...
