Hitting for the cycle in the Shortz Era

Puzzle count by day of week for constructors with 8 or more puzzles sorted by "contribution" which divides the credit for each collaboration puzzle by the number of constructors. So far, 59 authors have at least one puzzle in each day of the week and are said to have hit for the cycle. (Pre-Shortz data is not included here because difficulty level was not tied to day of the week in older puzzles.)
