September 16 Brainstorm Contenders

Puzzle Lady, Was I the only one to answer 42 on the parking lot puzzle? Why haven’t more people questioned the Readers answer? I would like to here other peoples opinions. On Aug 18th I received the following message from the Reader Web Team: Quote (cut and paste) “Hi ****. According to the author of the puzzle, the answer was 41. We've posted the author's explanation. No credit will be awarded for those who answered 42. ……..Blah, blah, blah (off topic)……. You also may consider posting this as a comment on the puzzle contenders webpage: The Puzzle Lady checks that page for comments and usually replies. We're just the Web staff who post what they tell us to. Reader Web Team” On Aug. 7th you posted a comment with an incorrect solution, you omitted moving car 35 up. It is not a solution without this 9th move! It seems that some people at the Reader now know the correct solution, why has nothing been done yet? Is it too late too correct your error? Did the Reader Web Team lie to me? So far your only response was in the form of an incorrect solution on Aug. 7th. I hope you can answer some of my questions. I am waiting to hear from you, The web team said you read these comments.
