Oldie but goodie from the BEQ files. This one originally ran in the Onion some five years ago. Ye gods. I've modernized some of the cluing, but I've always thought this was a pretty cool theme. In case you forgot, the Onion puzzle called it a day, but has risen Lazarus-style, and is now called the American Values Crossword Club. Looks like Ben Tausig posted my latest puzzle for them, for free at the above link. So go do it, will ya? Click away, folks. Two puzzles today, so don't say I don't hook you up. You can count on me.
Speaking of Ben, he wrote an interesting article about crosswords for The Awl. The article features yours truly, so click away after you're done solving.
Share the puzzle. New one on Monday.
