Happy Father's Day to those of the paternal persuasion! Tonight's puzzle marks a milestone for someone who made a fine choice to be a father of three. If you're off opening (or giving) ties and eating cake, we hope you'll come back later to join in the puzzling.

There's a new JulieCrostic below, with the usual rules. New puzzlers can find an explanation of the puzzle type and rules in yesterday's Sunday Puzzle Warm-Up. As always, please keep the subject lines free of spoilers so latecomers can work the puzzle on their own time.

The third Sunday jumped up and bit me this month, but that's a good thing -- it gave the gremlins hardly any time to do their dirty work. Enjoy!

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.
