LAT Mon. 2/21 Halsted & Peterson
« on: February 21, 2011, 09:47:54 AM »
Not Abe, Teddy, or Jack

23A  College concentration   MAJOR
7D   23-Across opposite   MINOR [How do we read this clue?  In general, minor is opposite of major.  But a college minor is not opposite to a college major; they are adjuncts.  (In music, the major and minor scales are opposite because there are only two choices.  Men and women are opposites for the same reason.)  So, are the words in the grid to be compared, or what the words mean in the context of the clue?  If it is the the former, this clue is fine; if the latter, this clue is imprecise.]

RATING:  ;DThree grins = Excellent: Loved it; Two grins = Good: Enjoyed it; One grin = Satisfactory: A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Unsatisfying: No fun
