NYT Sunday crossword puzzle - circled letters and words?
I occasionally take a shot at the puzzle. Last week's, revealed in this Sunday's edition of the mag, was titled "Getting Around." There were a few words in the puzzle, or parts of compound words, that had their spaces circled. The words don't make any sense to me in any combination I can see, and I can't figure out what is the significance of these circled letters/words. Not being an expert in crosswords, I figure that I'm missing or overlooking some basic code or plan. Any help, Dopers? xo,
