Constructor: Lynn Lempel

Relative difficulty: Easy



THEME: PED XING (39A: Something often seen on a street corner, briefly … or , literally, something seen in eau corner of this puzzle) — four crossing "PED" letter strings:

Theme answers:
  • SPED AWAY/ IMPEDIMENT
  • SHARP EDGE / PEDRO
  • STAMPEDE / BRAKE PEDAL
  • PIPE DREAM / HOPED
Word of the Day: SOLON (70A: Wise man) —
Athenian lawgiver and poet. His reforms preserved a class system based on wealth but ended privilege by birth. [Thus…]n.
1. wise lawgiver.
2. legislator. (thefreedictionary.com)

• • •

Seen it. Well, a version of it, back in 2009, when the crossing PEDs were rebusized. But no matter—this is clean and reasonably clever. Very theme-dense. My only beef is … well, two beefs. 1. I prefer when the hidden/embedded word spans two words (as in SHARP EDGE) rather than simply sits inside a word (STAMPEDE) or (worse) sits inside one word in a two-word phrase, leaving that second word just flapping there in the non-thematic wind (SPED AWAY). There are many PEDs to deal with here, so phrase-spanning PEDs in every case would be too much to ask for, but it would have been elegant to have them in all the longer answers. And then 2. I prefer when embedded words find themselves in phrases in which their base meaning is disguised. In this case, that would've meant no "PED" where "PED" was referring to feet. But both IMPEDIMENT and PEDAL have the same Latin root (interestingly, STAMPEDE appears to have no etymological relationship to L. pes, pedis 'foot'). I can forgive IMPEDIMENT, since it isn't so obviously foot-related, but PEDAL feels too spot-on. Too related to the PED in PED XING. Yes I'm over thinking this, but (also) yes I think elegance is a worthy consideration, even in a Monday.


Bullets:
  • 11D: Simple aquatic plant (ALGA) — this is one of three spots where I had some hesitation. Actually, here, I wrote in a flat-out wrong answer: ALOE. 
  • 32D: Late (TARDY) — Had TAR-Y. Wrote in TARRY—a weirdly related but clearly wrong answer. 
  • 70A: Wise man (SOLON) — Had the S- and couldn't come up with it immediately. Forgot SOLON was a generic term and not just a specific Athenian lawmaker.  
That's all for today. My holiday eating regimen is sapping my energy a bit ...

    Nicely executed theme (I don't recall the 2009 variation, and even if I did, I think 5 years is a long enough statute of limitations for a different take on a particular idea), nice theme words/phrases, clean fill. About as much as one can hope for from a Monday puzzle. Nicely done.

    Zeke 12:18 AM  

    It would be much more polite if I would care enough about the constructor's intent to wonder what the hell the theme was, but I don't. Never saw the reveal (what else could P_DXING be other than PED?), didn't care about the theme. All of this is to say that the puzzle was well above average for a Monday, and I was free to ignore the entymological flaws and the PEDs just sitting there at the end of the word, just begging to be taken.

    retired_chemist 12:33 AM  

    Solved as a themeless, but the PEDs XING was cute. Very easy puzzle.

    Thanks, Ms.Lempel.

    jae 12:35 AM  

    Easy-medium for me.  Delightfully clever. Had to stare a bit to find the theme crosses.  Very smooth on the money Mon.! Or, what @Steve J said.

    Surely y'all remember seeing this "Welcome to Connecticut" sign back in the day...http://nathanielstern.com/blog/2008/07/17/we-apologize/

    I usually try to avoid the revealer..But I needed it to get the theme. That's not a bad thing...it's just that I like feeling even more clever when I can get it all by my lonesome.

    Thanks Ms. Lempel.

    I get it, @Rex. Arod - PED's. Funny. You have his pic right there under SOLON, and I couldn't figure out why. LL with a strong Monday. Especially ELECTRIC and SERPICO. I know it's a bit crosswordese-y, by I always like seeing ELIDE.

    chefwen 1:41 AM  

    Well, I tried to leave a comment using "I am not a robot" button and it was erased. Bah!

    Enaway, nice easy Monday puzzle by Ms. Lempel. Just as a Monday should be.

    My favorite Snowbird left today, back to the Frozen Tundra, poor baby, I miss him already. I am now back to my regular scheduling
    puzzling and have a few in the backlog to solve.

    Good one, Lynn! And this one should be good with only 27 theme letters (why did you say this was theme dense, Rex?). The fill should be clean – and it is. Those theme answers, if you tilt them 45 degrees, do make Xes. And there is some good spark in the answers, as I’ve grown to expect from Lynn – SCAMP, SNIT, DAYO. I liked the clue for DUEDATE.

    Did anyone notice the split pea in BRAKEPEDAL? I like the crossing of STAMPEDE with AMASS. And there is a subtheme of answers of longer than three letters that end with very common three-letter words: AMP (twice), WAY, IAN, EAR, NIT, BIT, MAP, PIT, PAR, WAY, PIE, SAY, SHY, ALE, MEN, ASS, PEN. That’s 16 and there are others as well, just not so common.

    A fun little Monday gem.

    Mohair Sam 6:58 AM  

    Terrific Monday puzzle, played easy/medium here. Very little crosswordese, nifty theme - tough to do on a Monday.

    And agree with Rex's thought that he might be over-thinking this one just a tad.

    Mohair Sam 6:59 AM  

    @Rex - thanks for the ARod chuckle.

    Danp 7:33 AM  

    I might agree with @Rex on the elegance argument if the root helped people find the theme. But most Monday themes solve like themeless puzzles, and only when you are done or stumble on a reveal, do you look for it. In this case, I think the elegance would only impress a solid Thursday/Sunday solver. It's almost like asking for more metaphors in a Dr Seuss book.

    NCA President 7:47 AM  

    I guess what makes this easy is that once you get the revealer (which I did pretty early on), there are a lot of boxes that you just fill in once you identify where they go...basically you just need one P, E, or D and voila! instafill!

    Not that I needed that much. This puzzle somehow suited me and I filled it in quickly.

    SOLON is unknown to me. I also hastily wrote in ALoe. Other than that, easy peasy.

    Ludyjynn 7:51 AM  

    Very nice painless Monday. Still recovering from last eve's festivities, so that fit the bill
    perfectly.

    Favorite clue/answer: DUEDATE.

    Thanks, LL and WS.

    Anonymous 7:56 AM  

    Having done lots of Mondays, but not quite so steeped in crosswordese as most of you, I'd have to say this was more like easy/medium or even medium FOR A MONDAY. It's rare I'm not under 5 min on a Mon, and this was 6:18. I liked it, though. I usually don't have to think much on a Mon and I had to here.

    joho 8:02 AM  

    Loved the X in the reveal not only because it adds zip but also because it reinforces how the PEDs cross ...now that's elegant!

    It's fun how the opposites kind of match in that a BRAKEPEDAL can cause an IMPEDIMENT and anyone in a STAMPEDE most likely SPEDAWAY.

    I was excited to see Lynn's name at the top of the puzzle and she delivered again. We're off to a great start!

    Andrew Morrison 8:23 AM  

    Easy, even for Monday. I made it a little harder at times by overthinking the clues - 'highway divider' whatever could that be? Because MEDIAN is just so darn obvious....

    @Rex - Yes. You are waaaaaaay overthinking the theme!

    Z 8:25 AM  

    I thought the inelegant pair was PEDRO/SHARP EDGE. The other three pairings can be all related: SPED AWAY - nope, there's an IMPEDIMENT; I HOPED but it was just a PIPE DREAM; The BRAKE PEDAL wasn't enough to stop the STAMPEDE.

    Otherwise, a nice puzzle.

    @Chefwen - I've been skipping the captcha altogether. We'll see how long that works.

    mathguy 8:28 AM  

    Did anyone do Puns & Anagrams in yesterday's magazine? These puzzles aren't cryptics. The entry can be deduced from wordplay suggested by the clue but the definition is not always in the clue. So one can't be sure of some entries until they have been verified by the crossing entries. IMO, that makes them rather sloppy hybrids of cryptics and crosswords. Maybe it was the fault of yesterday's lackluster offering, but I'm not going to do them anymore.

    Bird 8:31 AM  

    Liked it. My preference for hidden words is that if the answer is 2 words than the themer better cross both of them. Only mistake was misspelling PARMaSAN.

    I apologize in advance, but I wonder if we'll see Uncle REBUS on Thursday.

    Joseph Welling 9:12 AM  

    I think the reason the crossed PEDs were easy to miss, even after seeing the revealer was that they were not "literally" in the corners of the puzzle.

    I very much liked "Pique Performance," but it seemed like a tough clue for a Monday.

    Carola 9:25 AM  

    An unusually fine Monday, I thought - clever theme with some nice connections, as @joho and @Z mentioned. I noticed JAG and MEDIAN, complementing the traffic-related theme answers, plus (in a stretch) PULL (away), STOP, REAR(end), ELECTRIC (vehicle).

    Other pleasures: NO WAY next to IMPEDIMENT, STORM + STAMPEDE, SCAMP paired with SOLON.

    Roo Monster 9:35 AM  

    Hey All !
    Well I thought this was a great puz! How hard this was to construct, having to find PEDs that will cross (8 of them!), plus put PEDXING in the center, (with that X ominously sitting there), with a fairly open grid, and manage to do all that, and have no dreck fill. Wow. Hats off to Lynn.

    It was a nice Monday puzzle, easy, but not automatic where you go , Meh. Hard to accomplish.

    Again, impressive LL!

    I spent four years in Madison as an undergraduate, where the Capital Times was both a very liberal and a muckraking kind of paper. Later, working in Washington, another staff member was explaining the Cap Times to someone from elsewhere. "Well," he said, "the typical headline is 'SOLONS in Pay Grab.'" So I can never forget the more generic meaning.

    How long before "Joni or Max" will be a familiar enough clue for 47A? There is something a little dadaist about the former.

    My form was IN ink before PEN; other than that, everything went right in. Nice Monday!

    quilter1 9:42 AM  

    Good easy Monday. For a bit I thought the revealer was fEDXING, as their boxes are on a lot of corners but those easy answers straightened me out.

    John Child 9:49 AM  

    A lovely puzzle that I wish had lasted wice as long.

    I've thought of Liz Gorski as the queen of early-In-the-week puzzles, but Ms Lempel has constructed far more, starting from 1979. I hope she keeps doing them!

    Hartley70 10:08 AM  

    Lovely Monday diversion that is just about perfect in my view.

    Bob Kerfuffle 10:16 AM  

    Good one.

    My experience was very much like @Tita's. Started off very easily, top to bottom, looking as usual to see if I could figure out the theme, but no luck. Read the clue for 39 A, with no letters in place, decided to play the game as a mini-meta puzzle. So I deliberately filled all the corners, leaving the center and revealer open.

    Fail! I couldn't, in the time I was willing to spend, figure out the meta. After I completed the center, I felt somewhat as @Joseph Welling says, that the PED crossings weren't really "in each corner." (Gotta have some excuse, right?)

    the redanman 10:17 AM  

    I don't speed, was under 7 minutes so someone will break 2 minutes.

    That said this for such an easy clean fill was really rather good. SOLON new to me, but I'm only a dozen years into this ...

    Joseph Michael 10:17 AM  

    Clever puzzle. Weird critique.

    Steve J 10:18 AM  

    @Lewis: I think you've miscounted the theme. I count 60 letters, not including the PED XING reveal. You can't just count the PEDs (and even if you did, you'd have 23, as the E's are shared in 8 of the 9 occurrences), because the PEDs don't stand in isolation; they have to be part of real words that work well as crossword answers. If you don't do those well, you can easily end up with a lot of junk on your hands.

    I have no idea what a typical theme letter count would be, but at nine answers (including the reveal), compared to a normal 4-5, I'd indeed say this puzzle is theme-dense. Which does make the cleanness of the fill that much more impressive.

    mac 10:21 AM  

    This felt like a beautiful, classic Monday.

    Loved the A-rod thing!!

    JC66 10:32 AM  

    Good puzzle

    Carola 10:44 AM  

    @jberg - I learned SOLON (and "cager") from my dad explaining headlines in the Cap Times to me :) Love the example your colleague came up with.

    Lewis 12:17 PM  

    @stevej -- I just counted the number of boxes with theme letters, with each crossed PED counting as five letters, and with four instances of that it came to twenty, plus the seven for the reveal. I have found in my constructing experience that it is simply the number of theme related boxes that determines how hard you have to strain to keep the fill clean. I understand what you say here, that each crossing involves two words, but then again, you don't have any words crossing two theme answers, which eases things up a bit.

    Now I can be totally wrong here. I'm thinking 27 for actual theme boxes, especially if the letters are common (and they are except for that X in the reveal) should make for an easier time to get clean fill, compared to a puzzle with, say, more than 40 theme boxes, which is not unusual.

    Any constructors out there like to chime in?

    Anonymous 12:19 PM  

    Yes, RNA is a part of biology's central dogma: "DNA makes RNA and RNA makes protein" and hence loosely qualifies as GENETIC STUFF. But unless you're a microbe (primarily a virus) RNA contains no genes. That is the role of DNA NOT RNA.

    Superb MonPuz. A work of art.

    Since @63 is oded on egg-nog ("holiday eating regimen"), I will help him out on BRAKEPEDAL substitutes, that will fit there...

    * ORTHOPEDIC. Still smacks of foot root.
    * WASDOPEDUP. Primo. NYTPuz may have wanted to avoid a consistent daily pot reference, tho.
    * VOTE4PEDRO. Cool Napoleon Dynamite reference, but can U imagine the blogrant, if this pony made the rodeo? All my dreams would come true.
    * TINEAPEDIS. Athlete's foot. Foot root2.
    * FISSIPEDIA. The now obsolete taxonic suborder of land carnivores. Well, hey--at least U wouldn't have SOLON, to kick U around, anymore.
    * CYCLOPEDIA. Perfect. Everyone knows what this is a desperate shortenin of.

    Whew. Glad that list's a wrap. Don't usually have to do research, on a MonPuz.

    Only thing this puz lacked was yer token Christmas reference. At least we got 58-Down, and the Christmas runtpuz...

    Arlene 12:41 PM  

    Okay - you're going to have to explain to me the A-rod thing - I don't seem to be following your glee in this.
    @mathguy - I've been doing the Puns and Anagrams puzzle for decades - there used to appear more frequently. Yesterday's puzzle had fewer anagrams and more puns than usual - and may have even had one straight clue. But I enjoy them, so still do them - always to completion.

    Steve J 12:42 PM  

    @Lewis: Thanks for the insight into your thinking. Not having constructed, I don't have a sense of where it gets tough to fill things cleanly. From a solving perspective, I've noticed that the more real estate that gets devoted to the theme - whether it's number of squares or number of answers - the higher the risk of compromised fill.

    Martel Moopsbane 12:47 PM  

    There are also three PEDs turning a corner rather than crossing: GAPES/DUEDATE, PEA/MEDIAN, and INPEN/ASKED. Too much traffic, maybe.

    Zeke 1:04 PM  

    @Arlene - ARod famously took Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs)

    Hartley70 1:16 PM  

    @Zeke, thanks I didn't get the A-Rod reference either.

    Arlene 1:36 PM  

    @Zeke - thanks so much! I'm getting such an education!

    Lewis 2:35 PM  

    @stevej -- Well, what you say makes absolute sense. I don't know the answer or if there is a definitive one. But in any case, Liz sure did good with this one!

    Teedmn 3:10 PM  

    Nice puzzle today, Monday easy but low on crosswordese. It took me slightly longer than a Monday but I seemed to be typing slowly today. I place the blame on the fact that I'm on vacation so my skills are blunted :-) .

    I didn't see the theme until the revealer so it made no difference solving but was a nice bonus.

    Thanks, Ms. Lemuel, for a smooth Monday. And thanks, @Zeke, for the Arod explanation, which went over my head, whoosh!

    retired_chemist 3:19 PM  

    Hand up for the A-rod joke going right over my head.

    I also have stopped checking the CAPTCHA box and have not had a problem. Not sure how it can protect the blog if the check isn't needed.

    Evan 4:51 PM  

    @Lewis & @Steve J -- I'll chime in:

    Steve's interpretation is correct. You can't leave out the rest of the non-PED squares when counting how much real estate is involved in the theme. All theme answers and their positions in any puzzle "determine how hard you have to strain to keep the fill clean." The other letters in the theme answers have the potential to strain the fill as well. That's especially true because there are only so many choices you can make when you've decided that some words must have -PED- hidden in them. Look at 19-Across. -PED---- offers only two good options: SPED AWAY and OPED PAGE. Either one of those would influence the surrounding fill.

    By my count, there are 67 theme squares, which is a lot for any 15x15 grid. Without having done a full analysis of it, in my experience, something like 44-56 is more typical.

    Lewis 5:49 PM  

    Thanks, Evan. I was hoping you'd chime in. And that makes great sense.

    Captain Obvious 6:19 PM  

    Me, I just counted the number of letters in Rex's bullet points, i.e. the theme entries.

    Evan 6:23 PM  

    @Captain Obvious:

    Which normally works, except the theme entries cross each other four times, so I excluded the four repeated E's there.

    one-time geneticist 11:00 PM  

    Anon 12:19, as far as I know, even the RNA of RNA viruses contains no 'genes' as such. Apparently the RNA of those viruses is used as a template for the host cell itself to make a complementary copy of viral DNA which then functions in the usual way.

    How I Got My Lover Back {eboehispellcaster@gmail.com}...

    What a wonderful and a straight forward spell caster that has brought back joy and happiness into my life after i saw a post on how he helped a lady called Nicole Morgan; i decided to contact him for help, when i told this God sent man Dr Eboehi on how my lover left me for 2 years without calling nor texting me, When i shared this my sad experience with Dr Eboehi he said everything would be okay within 3 days i was like am i sure what this man is saying is real, So i decided to give him a try and at first i was thinking he was a scam and i taught he was like other spell casters who come online to add pain to people's life not knowing there feelings but to make money, this great man Dr Eboehi is never like that because he is for good and to make people happy with the one they love, am just so happy, Even before the 3 days i just got a call from a man who has left me for 2 years saying that he his sorry and that he wants me back to his life i was so happy, He invited me for a dinner which i met with him there and we both talked, he said he wants to prove that he would never leave me for any other lady he engaged me and also made me had access to all his account am so happy all thanks goes to this great man Dr Eboehi a man who has brought back joy to my life, friends that need help in getting their lover's back i would advice you contact Dr Eboehi via email: eboehispellcaster@gmail.com because he is the right man to help you get your problem solved.

    Thanks... Stacy Donald

    spacecraft 11:32 AM  

    Didn't know the theme till I started working the center. I tried to, too. And there they were, plain as day, PEDXINGs. Made me ask myself, now why didn't I see that? I call that pretty darn seamless.

    Thinnish theme, but well executed; the defects mentioned by OFL are slight, IMO, and don't detract from the overall effect.

    Since I don't remember any "ouch!" moments, the fill must have been fairly clean. I do recall having TOME_ and hoping for the I...but that was just a PIPEDREAM. B+.

    rondo 1:07 PM  

    Nice enough for Monday. Not much fill to complain about and decent little theme.
    As a small part of my job I make sure that the PED-Xings on road construction projects meet ADA standards - so we can all traverse them safely.

    Foreign language lesson for the day - JAG - pronounced "yah" means "I" in Swedish.
    There was a rater large demonstration outside my office last week on the anniversary of ROE v. Wade.
    I belive we read about Uncle REMUS in our 3rd grade lesson books.

    Captch no. today?

    Ginger 1:39 PM  

    Fun Monday, found the reveal roughly half way through, then went looking for it. Clever.

    It looks like the east coast is in for a huge nor'easter. Stay safe everyone!

    @DMG, I still lurk some, but by the very late hour I finish the puz, (or it finishes me) it's really too late to post. And, of course I'm ODing on the Aussie Open. Sorry about Fed, but most of my favorites are still in it.

    DMG 3:00 PM  

    A nice way to start the week! Never saw the Xings until the revealer sent me on a scouting trip, but there they were. Am surprised at the ALoe/ALGA mix up as aloe is anything but aquatic. Maybe you have to live in arid climate to know that?

But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website, because my dream was to start a new life with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested for a specific love spell for me and my husband, and i accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his love spell. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me,my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds.The spell is work perfectly and my husband is now back to me again.My “husband” is back and we went to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr.Ogala for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: Ogalalovespell@yahoo.com or call him, +2348147673679.

    How I Got My Ex Husband Back..Am so excited share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 5 years now. We were happily married with three kids, two boy and a girl. 4 months ago, I started to notice some strange behaviour from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 3-4 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that king peso can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 24 hours later, my husband came to me and apologised for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to King peso Powerful Love Spell that really works. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you.

    My name is Elizabeth Romero from UK. I am here to give testimony on how I got my husband back, my husband left me for no reason 6 Month. He moved in with another woman, I felt like killing myself, my life became very bitter and sorrowful. Then 1 day, a friend of mine told me about a great spell caster that is very good and she said that he told her all about her life history and the problem she is facing, i didn't believe it because I've worked with so many of them and it didn't work. She begged me further so I decided to try this great spell caster called Great Dr OCUSODO. I still didn't believe, but inside me i wanted to give a try and as God will have it, i used the spell solution he gave me and the next day I received a call from my darling husband Romero last month. He apologized and came back to me. I'm very happy now with my family it worked for me and i believe it will work for you too just give him a try and follow up this is a clear truth from a testifier. Thank you Dr ODUSODO once again, if you want to reach him via email: drocusodospellcaster@gmail.com or drocusodospellcaster@yahoo.com
