I think the basic message spelled out in tonight's verticals is one which has been used before in a Sunday Puzzle. But it's a message worth repeating.

I probably won't be able to join in tonight's puzzle party. (I'm away from home this week, and probably won't get home until late Monday.) But I'm look forward to being part of the solving party next week when pucklady will be hosting our monthly potluck puzzle party.

Have fun with tonight's puzzle, and I'll see you at next week's potluck!

Here are the clues for tonight's JulieCrostic.

If you're not familiar with JulieCrostics you can find complete instructions (and a practice puzzle) in last night's Sunday Puzzle Warm-Up.

As usual it's wise to beware of mischief from the Sunday Puzzle gremlins, who love to alter the capitalization, punctuation, and occasionally even the word spacing of clues -- and who bundle the clues into tidy little groups of 3 regardless of how many answers there actually are in the rows.

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.
