Solve like Sondheim

Double issue last week, no new puzzle this week, so let’s go to the archives.

Last Friday’s Wall Street Journal included a feature on Sheldon Harnick, the lyricist for “Fiddler on the Roof.”  While showing the reporter around his New York apartment and talking about where and how he writes, he mentioned that the Blackwing pencils he used to use came on the recommendation of Stephen Sondheim.

I wonder how many Blackwings Sondheim went through creating his cryptics.  Do any of you use them for solving?
