Got a long list of ex-solvers. They'll tell you IT'S THEMELESS TIME. This week's puzzle was constructed by Rafael Musa, and edited by Hoang-Kim Vu. Rafa lives in San Francisco with his cat. For years he has been optimizing his home to be cat-proof, yet she still finds new ways to destroy everything he owns! When he's not making crosswords, he's usually on the hunt for a little treat or idly exploring other countries on Google Maps.
