Be sure to have a look at the crossword puzzle in today’s New York Times. It’s the bestest, most awesomest crossword ever!
Actually, I haven’t seen it yet. The Times does not make their crosswords freely available online (is there no end to their treachery?). And it’s not so easy to find a print edition of the Times here in Western Virginia. The university library gets it, but some days, like today apparently, they are a little slow getting the paper down to the periodicals room.
The way I know it is such a supremely magnificent puzzle is that it was constructed by my cousin Barry. So go check it out! And when you’re done with that go pick up a copy of his science fiction novel, which was inexplicably passed over for a Nebula Award back in 1987.
