LAT Wed. 7/29 Jerome Gunderson
« on: July 29, 2009, 08:03:13 AM »
The theme for today seemed to be two-word combinations each with double letters.  KIDDIEPOOL, RIBBONCUTTER, and RAZZLEDAZZLE fit that description.  But JOSHUATREE doesn't have two double letters.  So the actual theme is two-word combinations with at least one double letter.  Oh well.

By the way, what are the odds of having "Joshua Tree" find its way in two puzzles within a week?

I liked "Penthouse feature" for VIEW [I was thinking elevators] and "Car bar" for AXLE.

Yes, I see.  That's exactly what's wrong with covert themes: the cleverness of the constructor is often overlooked --- especially by dullards.

Thanks for setting me straight.     :)
