You learn the most amazing things solving puzzles. Sometimes by sheer coincidence there are some clues that might be tricky to some, but you just happen to know them. Tony winner for Sweeney Todd? I'm a Sondheim fan. Len CARIOU. It means nothing to Nero? The Latin word NIHIL happened to by part of my lame high school's lame motto. I was flying.
And then I got stuck in the corners. I had no idea what an amen corner was, and it's the key to solving this Thursday puzzle. So I learned something (since I had to look it up) and had some fun too.
My commercial web hosting service for xwordinfo.com is being flaky today, an embarrassing turn of events since I just started publicizing the service. I don't want to name any names, but maybe I should have paid attention to the hidden implication in the name DiscountAsp.net. Seriously, they've been great, but the timing sucks.
