Give and Take

Wei-Hwa's Puzzle Module for July 21st, 2006

Addendum (2006-08-04): There was a mistake in one of the puzzles that was fixed only after the module had been live for a few hours (puzzle 2 had HOMES instead of SHAME).

Addendum (2006-08-04): I gave the paper-only version of this puzzle to my friend Will Shortz two days ago while sitting next to him at dinner.  Will was able to solve the first five in 20 minutes, using no writing implements at all!
