Sun., 5/4 Wren Schultz
« on: May 04, 2014, 10:07:19 AM »
THEME:   phrase with IT subtracted creates an alternative phrase
   
GOOD ONES:     
"Never mind" [& theme]   FORGET ABOUT IT   
Bear with backup musicians?   SMOKEY AND THE BAND[IT]   
Home of robot jugglers and digital clowns?   ELECTRIC CIRCU[IT]S   
Start to celebrate?   SOFT C   
Acts like an opposite?   ATTRACTS   
Ball focus   BELLE [belle of the ball]   
   
BTW:   
The title, "Never Mind," seems to refer to the FORGET ABOUT IT entry, not the theme.  I'd have gone with "It's Missing."   
   
Average mark   CEE [not sure that it's true in the age of grade inflation]   
   
Barrie baddie   SMEE [was he bad or just a foil to Captain Hook?]   
   
RATING:    ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

What about the clue 47 across - "____ I know"
The answer was "as far".
Shouldn't the clue have read "____as I know"
"As far I know" makes no sense to me.

You're right.  There was an omission.  I should be more careful, but with our cadre of critics we should be in good shape.   :)
