( nr 237 ) Trivia: scans above are 3 examples of a faulty sudoku puzzle, hence without solution.

The defects are not always so obvious and can stay hidden till 'the end'.

There are of course puzzles with more than one solution.

The "NANO-WEAPON HOPE" defies comment - see The Times(!) article scan above.
A book on the history of witchcraft, which I bought two(?) years ago in Gosport, may be misteriously lost. In the introduction, the author compared (and almost defined) medieval witchcraft with phenomena described today as lesbianism and paedophilia.
There was also statistics of predominance of women in this 'business', followed by men, followed by children. Google Books search was invain.
