        Rush Crossword Puzzle!  (Original)
----------------------------------------------------------
Here is an original crossword puzzle from Cam Abrams submitted for your
amusement.  He says it's original, but mentioned it bears a resemblance
to the one in the back of the Moving Pictures tourbook (which I haven't
seen in 10 years).  I leave it to you to judge.  Or rather, I don't -
just enjoy it.  Cut just above the title, and trim off the trailers.  There
is a CTL-L in between the puzzle and the clues for a formfeed.  For me,
the puzzle fit on one page, and the clues fit on a second page.
