MAURER: While Mickey’s away, you can play

I am at Mickey’s Camp this week, busy raising a quarter of a million dollars for central Indiana charities. It is too late for you to attend this year, but please e-mail me at [email protected] if you have an interest in learning more about camp or in helping me with this endeavor next year. I would appreciate that.

In the meantime, please enjoy “Auto Parts,” a puzzle I recently constructed.•
