"Because" was crowned 2013's word of the year this past weekend. You might not want to click on that story if you haven't solved today's puzzle as I took a couple seed entries from the list of notable words. Because neologisms.
Thanks to all who were able to give to the year end drive. The outpouring of support was colossal. I am moved. Our randomly selected donor who wins a complementary years subscription to the AVCX (as well as one of my books) is Robert Brown of Colmar, Pennsylvania. Congrats, Robert.
Share the puzzle. New one on Thursday.
