What's the problem with stepquotes?
« on: July 29, 2014, 09:54:35 PM »
Stepquotes were popular a number of years ago, but it seems that they have fallen badly out of fashion among editors.  Does anyone know why this is?  And quote puzzles in general.

One needs a really good quote, but if that requirement is met, what's the problem?  A nice feature (for me, at least) is that you need to get a fair amount of the rest of the puzzle solved before you can begin to make anything of the quote.

One of my favorites, from some years back, was a quote attributed to Henry Kissinger (as I recall):

"Ninety percent of the politicians give the other ten percent a bad name."

Bill
