One of CROSSW RD Magazine's most popular features was George Bredehorn's ingenious "Split Decisions."

Here's How Split Decisions works:

The only clues you have are the letter pairs we've given you in the grid. Each answer consists of a pair of words that share the letters that you'll write in the empty squares. In the example we've given you, we've filled in the letters S, E and W to make SINEW and SCREW. A few of the entries may have more than one possible answer, but only one will fit correctly with the rest of the puzzle.
