There’s too much TMI. Seriously. Today’s crosswords had TMI answers. It was 51D Texter’s “I didn’t need to know that” in the NYT and 7D “You’re oversharing!” in the WSJ puzzle. I don’t know what that says about the New York Times that they need to clarify texting is involved while the Wall Street Journal felt it unnecessary.
Either way, they need to get some original ideas. No overlap between papers in the same city. Where are my OREOs and AARPs and NEONs?
This puzzle took me 8:38. A little up from last week, but it’s still below the 9+ I’d done for WSJ before.
Pardon me for failing to talk about this in the NYT one, but they put PORN as an answer. Leave it to Will Shortz to step it up from what was in the prior week. And shame on the Wall Street Journal for trying to one-up him with SEXAPPEAL as an answer in today’s puzzle. Don’t encourage Will Shortz. You’re better than that.
