I've been sitting on this puzzle for over a week, so I'm glad I can finally bring it to light. In light of this discussion, I wanted to get my word count down. At first I thought I had 28 pieces, for an average word length of 7 letters per piece, but it turns out I miscounted. I actually have 30 pieces, for an average of 6.5 letters per piece, which is slightly better than SAR #1 (6.3 letters) and much better than SAR #2 (5.5 letters), but I still have a long way to go before I'm in Patrick Berry territory. Ah well. Enjoy the puzzle! Acknowledgements to Patrick Berry.
