Time: 24:16. Screen froze at 3:08 and several minutes of delay ensued. NYT online clock kept running...oh well. Had ULTRA-LARGE for EXTRA LARGE, wanted SCORELESS for POINTLESS. Was baffled by CAPITAL U for "Unforgiven character" even after I got it....
CrossWorld buzz: Pretty good. A classic grid pattern w/ an impressive 66W, 26B. Buncha mini-themes w/ CEELO and GREEN, EMU and EXTRA LARGE, SADDLEBAG and GORP, KRANEPOOL and KEVIN. Some spark w/ IPOD NANO and CAPITAL U in the 9s. Not a lotta oomph in the 10-letter word stacks...NOSY PARKER and SADDLE BAG are pretty good but not marquee material. Yep, ya gotta give up something to get the WB count low.
CrossOver buzz: Pretty good....CAPITAL U is cuter for the insiders, but no big ish.
