What it Takes

14th May 2002

From the March New Yorker article, “The Riddler” about a crossword puzzle competition. I love these people:

As referees brought in completed puzzles, Rosen and the other twenty or so officials scored the answers, pausing only to ridicule the occasional hapless entry.

“Who writes ‘skua’ with a ‘q’?”

“Eriq La Salle!”

“Wasn�t he just on the over of GQ?”

“You mean GK?”
