Fine thing! I often complain that very few people post comments about the daily crosswords. Today someone does -- and then says "Never mind." That's okay, though. I hope Vince will be a frequent contributor here, and his post gives me an opportunity to write about the Chronicle Of Higher Education, a newspaper published 43 times a year for college and university instructors and administrators. (It's published biweekly during the summer months.) Online, the Chronicle is published every weekday and offers news, discussion forums and job listings. The website is

http://chronicle.com/

and the crossword puzzles can be accessed at

http://chronicle.com/section/Crosswords/43

"It won't take much, in a way" is TREY, which is a playing card with three pips. No, that is not a reference to Gladys Knight's old singing group. In this case, a pip is a diamond, heart, club or spade. The word came from the Latin tr─ôs and the Old French treis, which meant "three."

Today's crossword also includes ZORTZICO ("Basque dance rhythm"). Umm....."zortzico." Yeah, of course. I, uh, I knew that one. Really. Don't you believe me?
