Two Solitudes - A Puzzle by Craig Kasper

This puzzle contains two inaccuracies (albeit ones in common use),
and has a few other hang-ups that make it unlikely to ever be published
in a paying market.  Nonetheless, I believe you'll find it to be entertaining.

The feedback I've received so far indicates that I should provide some
additional information.  I'm a little reluctant to provide it directly, so click
on the following links to read the tidbits (or use them as lifelines if you prefer).
