Nice. Felt about the usual for a Tuesday to me. Did Shortz change many of the clues? You going to check out the puzzle blogs now?

You math types are clearly plotting to take over the puzzle world. I know why your puzzle is about UFOs. It’s to keep us all distracted why you and your mathematician cabal consolidate your stranglehold on my daily entertainment. Soon, it will be all SECANTS and RADII and EULERs …

Anyway, I’m on to you. And congratulations.

That second link was supposed to be to crosswordfiend. Not sure what happened….

Thanks for fixing the link, Aaron. I was thisclose to posting it myself, but thought that would come across as grasping and desperate. And that it not what I’m all about.

Rex is right about the plot, isn’t he? I’d better start stockpiling…whatever it is that one must stockpile before the mathematicians establish a beachhead.

PS I meant “while,” of course, not “why” (“WHILE you and your mathematician cabal …”)

while … while while while. While can’t I type without typos? Ugh.

I for one welcome our mathematician overlords.

P.S. can I have a position in the administration? I’m published and all…

Sunday, January 6, 2008. 76D seems to be a mistake. I think it should read “FLUIDSTATE,” and I don’t know what OAF (74A) stands for.
