Lots of stuff in the WP I never knew before. Very enjoyable too.

Ditto, lots of great trivia within the theme. Excellent puzzle.

Wow, that was a lot of work. But worth the effort--very clever and interesting. Good one, Barry.

I enjoyed the theme and appreciate that it made me think (something that I don't do enough)!!

Whew! That was awesome, albeit a workout.

Haven't done this in awhile...used up every letter on one phrase.
But, I liked the other 4!

Very clever WP. I had to use all the letters on two phrases just to find one word. I managed to see the phrase every time except for the most important word.

Just so you know, it is never my intention to put obscure words in a puzzle -- since being justifiably criticized for using a technical bridgeword in one clue I've learned my lesson!.
Let me know in due course what word caused the problem and I'll try not to do it again.

No worries, Barry. Everyone else probably knew the word but me. However, I did wear out my googler.

very interesting trivia. It wasn't quite what I expected but was pleasantly surprised at the range of information given.

Great puzzle but VERY hard.
Lighten up Barry, we're not all as clever as you!!!

No seriously, that was a great puzzle, very clever.

Well done Daveguth (are you Slicko in disguise!).

Thanks Barry, I do enjoy a challenge.

Uh oh, Digs--don't feed any of those "outside help" conspiracy theories.

Slicko is the smart one--I'm the one who happens to be on a VERY enjoyable, put particularly lucky streak lately. I'm sure I'll figure out a way to self-implode in due time.

I just did not know the expression nasdaq qqq and yyy delilah, I checked afterwards and they were perfectly correct. In my puzzle solving strategy the letters q and y come at the very end to find a word. Regards

QQQ was perhaps too obscure -- but since i live in NY and knew it I perhaps wrongly assumed that others would too. In retrsopect it WAS very tough.
The YYY delilah was my sense of humor running away with me. (I did use the 'cheat' word in the clue but it was not so obvious I admit)
And I also erred by using a klu about the KKK and using their name in full not the three initials.
Oh well; back to the drawing board.

QQQ ate my alphabet, kicked my butt, and if it hadn't been the last one, would've made me bail.

It's good to be married to a NASDAQ employee. Not that that kept me from getting chewed up by the other puzzles.

I didn't have trouble with your Nasdaq phrase and thought it was fine. I've often found that if there's an unusual letter ("q") in a phrase, the author will usually help you by having it appear more than once. I don't know if you consciously designed the phrase that way or not, but once I figured out Nasdaq, I clicked on "q" and presto! I had the name of the fund.

I'm glad you brought up the issue of kkk and your Ku Klux Klan phrase. That wasn't one of the phrases I got, but I did get the Better Business Bureau and World Wide Web phrases and wondered about the pattern, based on my other phrases. I kept expecting to find bbb and www in those phrases.

Nevertheless, as I said, I really enjoyed your WP -- thanks again!
