Committed Solver of the Week

This fake award goes to the gray-haired businessman (or maybe a lawyer—he reminded me of Vic Fleming) I saw crossing Randolph Street in downtown Chicago this morning...eyes glued to the crossword he was solving while striding through the crosswalk. He continued plugging away as he walked (slowly) down LaSalle Street.

Don't be too surprised if the Chicago papers ever report that a crossword solver has been run over by a cab.
