Cryptoquote confusion

"A government big enough to give you everything you want is strong enough to take everything you have." Thomas Jefferson

That's the answer to Tuesday's Cryptoquote puzzle. The wrong solution ran in today's print edition of the paper. We'll run the answer in tomorrow's paper as well.

Our crossword solution was also wrong. That too will be corrected in tomorrow's print edition.

The errors were the result of mistakes that happened as the page was being put together. There's a standard in the industry that calls for the date of publication to be written somewhere on every comic and puzzle. They're small and usually hidden, sometimes tucked along a border or in a corner.
Those dates are a good way for us to check publication dates, something that didn't happen in this case.

Today's cryptoquote was cut off by the column next to it. The cryptoquote should be available on the "games" site! Help! I'm in cryptoquote withdrawal!
