Well, today is trash day and all of the past week's newspapers have been hauled away by the recycling truck so I'm unable to say which newspaper this puzzle appeared in or who composed it, but one of the recent crosswords contained several pairs of intersecting words that included the letters PO in a single space. The theme was P.O.BOX.

Today's Los Angeles Times puzzle had the same P.O.BOX theme but used a different pattern: phrases starting with P and ending with O.

If anyone can come up with a third P.O.BOX idea, I'll be very surprised!

Magus, you are a very clever and creative writer. I put you on a par with Edgar Allen Po.
