Crossword constructors tend to have good vocabularies. They tend to use words with useful combinations of vowels and consonants. There are thousands of crosswords written every year. The fact that two using the same word should appear before your eyes within X amount of time ... coincidence.

It's all a conspiracy I tell you! What exactly it's meant to accomplish I'm not sure yet....
