Let me share a story.
The management for my old band, The Campaign For Real-Time, was this lovely husband and wife team. Now, Gail was a huge crossword fan, and we'd talk puzzles in between band stuff. She told me once that she was thrilled to find her daughter, Christine Elise, was a clue in a Times puzzle by Manny Nosowsky. You see, Christine's an actress, best known as Emily Valentine on "Beverly Hills, 90210." Manny's clue reflected this, so Gail framed a copy and sent it to Christine. Fast forward a couple years: The Campaign's out in L.A., and Christine's having us over at her house. I asked her about said puzzle, and she went off to get it. If memory serves, it was at the bottom of a waist-high pile of assorted stuff covered in a inch-thick layer of dust. The moral? The "fame" as a crossword clue/entry is fleeting at best, and almost guaranteed to become quickly forgotten.
Then again, Christine's not much of a puzzle person.
Let's reflect back to this puzzle. My wife was front and center in that puzzle, and a grand total of nobody has stopped her on the street because of it. (Oh, speaking of Liz, Happy Birthday!)
Anyway, Peter, if you should stumble upon this blog, we're getting on it. You'll probably be a clue in a puzzle on this blog first. Just saying.
Share the puzzle. New one on Wednesday.
