There will be no edition of the Alameda Daily Noose today. In case you hadn't noticed, there's a holiday coming up, and the Alameda Daily Noose and I want to get on the road extra early to avoid the terrible traffic that is going to slow our progress across Alameda. It can take a long time to get from one end of the island to the other, which is why we are allowing an extra day. Every year, we consider flying instead, but driving is much more enjoyable.
To help you get through the long holiday weekend without a Friday dose of soon-to-be-award-winning investigative journalism, we've provided you with a puzzle that should eat up at least one of those desolate, uneventful days. The object is to help the Easter Bunny find his way through this accurate map of Bay Farm Island. The Alameda Daily Noose and I have already solved the puzzle, but the only hint we can give you is to be sure to use a water-based marker. We are still trying to clean the Sharpie marks off our screen.
