We haven't had any input from the creator of the puzzle since the initial post. At the very least, we usually get some confirmation about how many answers on the consolidation are correct. That might be quite helpful.

Not just that, but he hasn't been on this Bored since he posted the puzzle on January 11. I know the Pastor does some strange things at times, but it would be very odd to post a puzzle and not at least check up on it (unless he's doing so incognito) for over a month.

Does anyone know a way to get in touch with him to see if he's okay?

This is Roger Daltrey, and I figured it out once I figured what the Tangredi is. Frank was right that Allen Ludden is is the key. I first noticed that none of the first names were duplicated indicating that half of the puzzle consisted of first names of 50 of these people. The 50 words are clues you might give in the game of Password. One of them is SUN. If I gave the clue "sun," you would probably guess "moon." And that matches perfectly with Keith Olbermann for Keith Moon. Since none of the answers that we had already guessed really matched up with Keith Moon, I looked at the unanswered clues and guessed that this might have been Roger Daltrey and I was correct.

So, Keith Olberman + Moon (sun) = Keith Moon, goes with Roger Daltrey.

FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT or MISSY LeHAND

I couldn't find the answer to this one, but it's not either of these options. Missy LeHand died a year before FDR.

it's LUCY MERCER


I think we're actually looking for Franklin Roosevelt here, because:

10. Franklin Roosevelt + Cover (Blanket) = Franklin Cover, goes with 49. Roxie Roker

Would you put the numbers in? It makes it easier to keep the consolidation up to date. Thanks.

24. Bobby Jones + Van (Mover) = Bobby Van goes with 51. Elaine Joyce

I'll also point out that my matchup for Keith Moon may not be right. Moon may go with Satellite, especially if you can link Sun with Star or something similar.
