General Discussion / Continuing decline ...
« Last post by BGoldstein on July 11, 2014, 10:05:46 AM »
The LATimes finally resurfaces, but today (Friday, 7/11) five of the six links to puzzles are broken.

But I'm likely talking to the wind ...

Kevin, I'm sorry you're in a difficult place.  You're right, of course, our crosswords are great but they're a wee concern in the scheme of things.  Thanks for the quick fix, and take care.

Sorry for your troubles. People should be smart enough to have a back up plan instead of complaining. You take care.

Sorry, folks. But I have had a very tough time. Split from wife, living out of hotel rooms, no access to my laptop which has all the goods.

Not a fun time.

I can guarantee that the frustration of not getting the LA Times crossword is not a big deal compared to what I have been going through.

Just saying.

THEME:   phrases containing letters T, H, I, N separated by other letters
   
GOOD ONES:     
Weakening, in a way, {& theme}   WEARING THIN   
Problem with pictures   REBUS [I thought the pictures had a problem]   
Occasions for shooting stars?   PHOTO OPS   
   
BTW:   
The theme clue says the phrases are "literally" wearing the word thin.  Problem is phrases don't wear anything literally.  Maybe if  the modifier were "literarily" I could enjoy the rest of my day.   
   
How can it be that I remember that Certs contained RETSYN, which sounds like a portmanteau for pepsin and rennin?  Is advertising so profound?   
   
Bk. Before Phillippians   EPH [that's Ephesians, but what is amazing that in my teens I was taught a mnemonic for NT letters, and now I know why --- if it comes up in a Xword half a century later I'd know.  Retsyn and Ephesians in one day!    
   
   
RATING:    ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

THEME:   phrases suggesting a kind of mixing
   
GOOD ONES:     
68-A: with 69-A {theme}  THEY MIX   
It's not free of charge   ION   
   
BTW:http://www.cruciverb.com/Smileys/default/shocked.gif   
Belief in one god   THEISM [that is monotheism; theism posits one or many gods --- and the clue suggests need for capital G]   
   
Family car [twice]   SEDAN & WAGON   [I always think I misread when the same clue appears.]      :-\
   
   
RATING: ;D   
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
