I forgot to point out that I guest-posted over on Jim’s blog this week — Jim runs an amazing crossword reference site at XWordInfo. Jim is a great and smart guy with a set of interests that sometimes intersects minge (crosswords) and sometimes is oh so different — “I have a theory that nobody loves both Fellini and Bergman. You have to pick one and that determines much about your life.”
…Criminy. Look, I don’t mind stuff I don’t know (I see it every day), and I don’t really mind stuff I don’t know crossing other stuff I don’t know, but only if there’s some way for me to make a reasonable guess…Come on. That NW corner is just dickish.
I have to agree with the sentiment.
