Looking back at the above, I hope that my meaning was not construed as
somehow insulting to the members of this list; far from it, as I am
obviously in the same boat. What I meant to convey was that many readers,
even among the sub-set who enjoy Wolfe, have little more than a passing
interest in solving the puzzles. They either lack the time needed to pursue
solutions or feel that the rewards are not worth the effort.
