Ditto, Beck. You did a great job; I just haven't had time to construct a new one.

Onnicle: Really, everyone’s quite unenthusiastic. I even miss inventing new puzzles. Are co-solvers extinct?

Clue: At first we wrote and solved, but now we may have to say this about “onnicles.” [sniffle.]

Requiem in pace.

Onnicle: In the corner of the bar, swilling brew, Ol' Fenton, the burglar chief, celebrated a good winter, his best ever, excepting only his very first outing back in 1934.

Clue: Sleuths: verbophile, amanuensis; creator.

Beck: if I am not mistaken, at first regularly encountered questions involving ecclesiastical sentences can, almost tragically, include nasty parsing and crude endings.

Of course, you're right! What the heck was I thinking at quarter to midnight on a Friday? I was a req, just not the write one!

Fortunately, you managed to pick up the pace.

Whew - a tough one, Sackbutiator.

Nero Wolfe, Archie Goodwin, and creator, Rex Stout.

Onnicle: His voice trainer made Steven sing a two-hour-long, bona fide lesson every day in preparation for Christmas services.

Clue: Perhaps this is what he sang

Adeste Fideles. Smooth! You can call me Sack, if you like, or any other subset.

Onnicle: Choosing a spot under an enormous tree three feet from the intersection, banishing depression, rancor, nervousness, and any sensation of cold, Steven sang his carols.

Clue: Perhaps this is where he sang after services.

street corner!

(I give him more credit than that.)

Onnicle: Hurry up, Ricardo! Run, in case anybody now entering Kenner asks to recover in nearby Arabi!

Clue: At first she didn’t seem so bad, but we should have known better.
