Title: Wed., 12/4 Ed Sessa
Post by: magus on December 04, 2013, 09:06:34 AM
THEME:   last letter of a two-word phrase is E; first letter of second word Z
This crossword, literally for some, phonetically for all   EASY PUZZLE   
Shepard in space   ALAN   
Made a hue turn?   DYED   
Short market lines?   UPC [bar code]   
Hit a Target?   SHOP [note capital T]   
Head of Paris?   TETE   
Big one on set, perhaps   EGO   
Pound and Eliot in the same puzzle is a nice touch.  Stravinsky and Ibsen also tap our prouder culture, but then there's "Scooby-Doo" and The Zombies --- to keep from being too stodgy I suppose.  At least I wasn't asked to name a rap star.   
Mechanic, at times   GREASER [yes, but with Wednesday morning quarterbacking I thought Vinnie Barbarino or The Fonze might have been richer --- maybe "Pomade user" or "Jersey Shore progenitor"]   
RATING:    ;D ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
