Monday Crossword: NYTimes No. 0328

Monday Crossword: NYTimes No. 0328

Twelve minutes. About average for a Monday. (If you don’t know, the puzzles are easiest on Monday, and get progressively more difficult throughout the week.)

The center clue is a hint to the other four long horizontal answers. 35A: APPEALING (Winsome… or like the ends of 17-, 24-, 51-, and 58-Across to a punster?); 17A: ADAMSAPPLE (Bump on the neck); 24A: HOTPOTATO (Issue that’s too dangerous to touch); 51A: TOPBANANA (Grand pooh-bah); 54A: GLASSONION (Hand-blown wine bottle that’s also the title of a 1968 Beatles song).

Love 5D: STAN (___ Lee of Marvel Comics), so it is a joy finding him in the crossword puzzle. Almost as much fun as spotting a Stan Lee cameo in a Marvel movie. 

Also loved seeing Itzhawk Perlman this morning; 55A: VIOLIN ([his] instrument). 

Enjoy.
