Congratulations to Virtus who in mid month appears to have gone through every puzzle in WP and finished in top 10 (having typed one wrong letter in 28 puzzles!)
Is that right Ann?
I hope I'm not putting the kybosh on you -- but at least for today's puzzle you look safe enough.

And to daveguth who took my 2009 tournament and has averaged an unbelievable 28% higher than the second contestant so far. 98%....on quizzes that averaged a 6-7 for difficulty. We are not worthy Dave!

And you're not so shabby yourself, Barry. Tho, I'll admit that lately when my husband says something brilliant, I've taken to calling him Dave.

First of all, let me join in with the kudos to Anne. She has been amazing this month. Right now, the leaderboard looks reasonably close only because Anne apparently wasn't able to complete a recent WP. She'd be far ahead of the pack if she had the full complement of WPs this month. No insult to the amazing Slicko, but Anne might have won this month even if Gary had been able to play full-time.

As far as the lesser competitor mentioned in this thread, thank you, Barry, Alice and Donna! Two things helped: 1) apparently some common interests between Barry and me, e.g., we read the same New Yorker article about fictional composers, and 2) a little bit of Googling when Barry's queries were just a little too far out there. (I can hear the self-appointed Sploofus ethics adjudicators sharpening their pitch forks!)

By the way, Alice, we have the same rule in our house about my wife calling me Dave when I'm brilliant. That's why I've learned to answer to "Hey, you."

Way to go, Dave.

Too bad about the February's Most Famous, but I'm
sure you'll make it up. Somebody went to a lot of work
to deny you the win.

Thanks, Barry, Dave and all. The WP community is made up of some really wonderful folks. It is the highlight of my day to get to play with my friends
I will never be good at WR/WM since I am so slow. However, the WP format allows me to take my time. Sometimes I just stare at it until a light comes on. I also have a very close buddy named "Google" who likes to help me.

I did miss the WP on Survivors because the support team didn't get to my urgent plea for a reset until after 8:00. I did, however, get a very nice apology note a few minutes after 8.
Oh well. The month is only half over. Let the race begin.

BTW, Happy Valentine's Day to all!

Anne, the
