This week we chose to do a throwback issue and feature some of our favorite articles from The Pioneer archives. Why? Shits and giggles. KEEP ON RAGIN', Diana

The Backpage would like to reopen this case. Our list of possible suspects includes: a crazy alumni, a jealous Whitman department, the old Backpage and Hamburglar.

Hey all, I’d like to apologize for last week’s puzzle. I spelled “ochre” wrong, I mistook an oboe for a string instrument (sorry oboists) and I left out two clues. This sloppiness shouldn’t be tolerated—I’m a high-class Puzzle Slut. Getting the hang of this crossword business is a little hairy, so forgive me in the coming weeks as I challenge you to decipher crazy abbreviations—I try only to include them when absolutely necessary— while I learn the ropes. With more practice and experience as Puzzle Slut I should get a tighter handle on what my answers are. As for now, if I screw up like I did last week, give me a holler at braytoac@whitman. edu and chew me out for it. Forever slutting it up, Adam Brayton, Puzzle Slut
