Hello Puzzlers, Potential Puzzlers, and the Merely Puzzled! Welcome to Sunday Puzzle, hosted for the first time by yours truly, with some trepidation but if you're reading this, it worked! Thanks to Nova Land and pucklady for the push off the high dive.

Today's puzzle is again a JulieCrostic, named for our late founder, Julie Waters. If you're unfamiliar with how these puzzles work, you can find the rules in yesterday's misdated (oh, those gremlins!) but still entertaining warm-up puzzle diary.  

I hope you're all having a wonderful April, the most beautiful and cruel month. And now, as Ed would say, let's get to work!

Today's puzzle is, I think, relatively gremlin free, but one can never be totally certain! See you in the comments.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
