Right now I'm in Albany, Oregon. My wife and I are headed to Washington state to spend Christmas with her family. I bought the Sunday Albany Democrat-Herald.....and the Los Angeles Times crossword is in it! Go figure! But there is also a crossword by Wayne Robert Williams. It's titled "Happy Holidays" and includes a Dr. Seuss quotation which very conveniently could be put into three 17-letter phrases: MAYBECHRISTMASTHE/GRINCHTHOUGHTDOES/NOTCOMEFROMASTORE. Amen!
