From: James Randi --- Wizard To: Subject: The puzzle solution.... Date: Mon, 22 Jan 1996 10:51:32 -0500 One of my readers solved the "puzzle" that I sent out recently. It was Lewis Jones of London. To those of you who might have some curiosity about it.... The key was in "new" and "ideal" and "Daniel." Daniel was Webster, and the second edition of the Webster Dictionary using those words in the title. Then there were page and column numbers, leading to specific words: MAJOR QUA DRO INVESTIGATION UNDER WAY BY FBI FOR ECOMOMIC FRAUD I couldn't reveal this fact at that time, but now the trap has been sprung and the arrests have been made.
