A Riddle wrapped in an Enigmatist

Will Shortz, aside from having a name that makes me giggle for some reason, is a pretty bright guy.  It’s always fascinated me that someone can make a living and attain a certain modicum of fame by being the ‘editor’ of a crossword puzzle. I never really understood what that meant. I figured you either created it or solved it, I couldn’t grasp how one would ‘edit’ a puzzle. Now I get it… check out the article below.

  • Every crossword in the Times is a collaboration between the puzzle-maker and the puzzle editor. On average, about half the clues are mine. I may edit as few as five or ten percent of the clues, or as many as 95 percent for someone who does a great puzzle but not great clues.

Keanu, King of the Franks

Fistly, I’d like to award myself for the most misleading headline… it is a reference to Charlemagne, who was King of the Franks in the year 814. Or should I say, Keanu Reeves, who was King of the Franks in 814. Or Keanu “Paul Mounet” Reeves, who was a French actor in the late 1800s.

Conclusion: Keanu is immortal.

I know people who have worked with Keanu and they all say he is the sweetest, nicest person they’ve ever met, and would never say a bad thing about him.

He’s read every book ever written, doesn’t care about money, will sit and share a meal with a homeless person… I think he might be Jesus.
