CrossWorld buzz: Not tOO OOmphy. What Rex said about the arbitrariness of the OOO theme answers; a 78 word Wednesday grid with no down fill longer than six letters and a 3-3-3-3 running down the middle is also a bit subpar for us puzzle people.
CrossOver buzz: Pretty good. OOO indeed...the accessible theme and the straightforward definitions make this a decent gateway Wednesday for real people.
