Greetings from American Crossword Puzzle Tournament in New York City, where Grant and I will be presenting awards after the finals this year. We’re having a fine old time, as is everyone else here. And after trying a few brain-busting puzzles this evening, I have a world of respect for what these die-hard cruciverbalists manage to accomplish!
Here we are with New York Times crossword puzzle editor and NPR Puzzlemaster Will Shortz. (Note how puzzled I look already.)
