I've seen SIDEB and BSIDE in quite a few puzzles recently. A few artists still release albums on vinyl, but 45-rpm singles haven't been produced in the US since the early 2000s. (45s are still produced in Australia and Great Britain---don't ask me why.) I've said that AFRO should no longer be used in puzzles. Now I maintain that SIDEB and BSIDE should also be retired from puzzledom. While we're at it, let's retire AVA too. Who remembers Ava Gardner anymore?
