new word puzzle-Damn Idi Amin & answers to last week's puzzle


In this puzzle you are asked to discern famous people where I have eliminated any letter that appears three times in their surname. As to why the title of the puzzle is Damn Idi Amin!, I should explain that I do not bear any particular acrimony towards this former Ugandan dictator. Rather, it is so titled because if you remove the three Is that appear in the name Idi Amin you get “damn.” If there two letters that appear three times, both of them disappear so Anna Kournikova becomes KURIKOV; if there are three letters that appear thrice, they also are taken out. I have also provided the field the individual represents. Thje answer to the first clue (Aiisi, literature) is Anais Nin. Good luck with the balance.
