"The last true showcase for elegant language, sparkling wit, and groan-inducing puns." Thus Clive Thompson describes this blog. He's spot on, too, except for the bit about the groan-inducing puns. Doubtless he meant grin-ducing.
Any. Way. Thompson's article is actually about the New York Times crossword, which he compares with the tedious Sudoku. I've never seen a Times crossword, you've got to fork out to read it, but I seem to recall American crosswords are a different beasty from those in the civilised world. An untidy cross - Tah! Dahh! - between cryptics and the general knowledge versions. It could also be that Thompson is talking utter rubbish because the "Classic Puzzle from The New York Times Archive" is pants. Nevertheless, if you know a good American crossword can you point me in the right direction.
Speaking of crosswords - any idea?
