CrossWorld buzz: Very good. Superb if you know the young kid/old pro constructing team. A big yes to the zippiness of the three NW 11s. The semi-closed feel of the grid compared to open-field Sat. norms is a bit of a negative for puzzle geeks.
CrossOver buss: Excellent. Real people don't care quite as much, even subliminally, about open-field beauty as insiders do. The zippy Scrabble-crunchy stuff from different eras that abounds in this puzz makes this an even better CrossOver than CrossWorld buzz puzz, controlling as one must for the fact that Saturday puzzes are hard on the outsiders. The many winking clues of v. familiar CW fill make this a truly exc puzz for outsiders on the way to becoming insiders, which is one v. impt audience on Saturdays.
