LAT Sun. 4/29 Alan Arbesfeld
« on: April 29, 2012, 09:04:43 AM »
Title: AMAZING! [title is a mystery unless it refers to the nine phrases comprised of words beginning with W]

Good Ones:
Legal opening?   PARA [how about “Legal brief”?]
Buck chaser?   AROO
Crib sheet users   TOTS
Sudden death cause   TIE
Last word in doughnuts   KREME [they think so]
Gray area?: Abbr.   ANAT [Gray’s Anatomy]
Nice bean?   TETE

Theme: Note WHOSWHO at 5-Down

By the Way:
It isn’t every day we get two Shakespeare references: ALONSO & CASSIO.

I hope I’m missing something regarding the title.  Rob Reiner said A Few Good Men should win the Oscar.  It should have but didn’t --- probably because he was smug.

Some Nits to Pick:
“Eew!” kin   ACK [I don’t think so.  I’d go with the abbreviation]

ALER [like ACER, not used anywhere but in Xwords]

RATING:   ;D ;D ;D Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

The first letter of each word of the phrase spells "Wow".
