I'm far too sleepy after dinner out with Byron and Tyler again. I realized it was past my son's bedtime, but hadn't noticed I was entering the witching hour wherein my cognitive skills start to doze off. Ergo, short, short post:The NYT puzzle's by Randall Hotman, or Hartman, if you insist—another in the series of Boston-accent themes. The Sun puzzle is Patrick Blindauer's "Double-Jointed," in which a (roughly) central letter does double duty in the phrases the theme entries are based on. Outside of the theme, there's the old video game QIX and the word CYBERPET—both seldom seen in crosswords but fun.
