Yeah, I got demolished by this one and then finally called it. I’ve been watching the health officials testify before the House Select Subcommittee in background, and this whole thing is a mess. Jim Jordan once again is trying to steamroll, bully, and pontificate rather than find anything out.
Maybe I was close to getting the answer to a key clue that would let me resolve the rest, but almost 40 minutes in, and I’m calling it. I don’t think I did enough to have any other opinion about this puzzle than it was tough.
Reminder that I won’t be doing the Saturday NYT crossword puzzle because I do that with friends, so I’ll do some other puzzles for tomorrow’s posts instead.
