Puzzling -- UPDATE

I've just chatted with the amiable Will Shortz, crossword puzzle editor for the New York Times, who'll be speaking tonight at the Clinton School after a showing of the documentary "Wordplay." (The film features music by the puzzle-creating District Judge Vic Fleming.)

A crossword/sudoku tournament is about to get underway as part of Arkansas Puzzle Day, so proclaimed by Gov. Mike Beebe. About 400 people have registered to attend various puzzling events. (Shortz tips me that the puzzles in the competition will be the Mon.-Thur. puzzles scheduled for publication in next week's Times.)

UPDATE: That was no lady who won today's crossword contest, I'm told. That was my wife. The brains of the family operation. And if you can't put your own wife on your blog for winning a crossword contest, getting a handshake from Will Shortz, why even have a blog?
