NYT Puzzlemaster (2 wds)

I don't do crosswords much anymore, if at all, having left the activity behind in college, when I could get the New York Times for free every weekday and when I had "time" (read: class) to kill. Mondays -- the easy day -- I'd time myself. Tuesdays, I'd leisurely fill in the puzzle. Wednesday, I'd give it my best shot and finish perhaps half the time. Thursdays and Fridays, I didn't even try, except to skim the clues. That's what you did in college, too, right? Anyway, the Times crossword is -- or can be, at least -- a thing of beauty, thanks to Will Shortz. New York magazine profiles him here. He's now making a fortune on Sudoku.
