D.C. lawyer pens "Rally to Restore Sanity"-inspired crossword for the New York Times
A logophile's take on the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert rally: Chris Handman, a D.C. appellate lawyer at Hogan Lovells, has published his first crossword puzzle in Tuesday's New York Times. "It's 15 minutes of nerd fame," Handman told us. Written in just 24 hours ("I was possessed"), Handman submitted the rally-inspired puzzle just a month ago, and it was rushed into print -- a rare feat in the crossword world. Answers included "Colbert" (39 Across), "Stewart" (41 Across) and "Papa Bear" (6 and 10 Across), Colbert's nickname for Bill O'Reilly. Handman gets bragging rights and $200: "It's very much a labor of love," he said.
