Today's time: 4:58!  A new record.


For "wide keyboard key" I had *SPACE but crossfill revealed ENTER.  Deucedly sneaky, these crossword maker chappies.

Clever clues: "Rest of the afternoon" is SIESTA.  "Web site?" is ATTIC.

Unusual fill: THE LAW IS A ASS (said by Mr. Bumble in Oliver Twist).

I am the single most cluless-about-sports American male, an ongoing series: ISIAH Thomas, "NBA Hall-of-Famer" is only a vaguely remembered name to me.  Why doesn't he spell his name "Isaiah?"
  • Update:  I was apparently thinking of Isaiah Thomas, the still-active player for the Celtics and Cavaliers.  It turns out I've never heard of Isiah Thomas.  How confusing.
