By Wednesday, the clues are for pretty obscure stuff. Probably used "sportscaster, Patrick' once too often

Wait, is that the regular crossword or the cryptic crossword? Well, lots of cachet in either case, I suppose.

I'm curious whether the "Piece of Slate, e.g." one is a reference to the online magazine; they had a clue not long ago where the *answer* was SLATE, and the clue was, "Home of the Political Gabfest and The Gist" or something to that effect.

No brag, just fact.

@14 "That's what I said: James is darn good..."

Sorry, "O.M.G." qualifies as a humble-brag.

I'm going with "Michael" seeing as how he said that the motivation for female students who come from a private school to feed and provide services to the homeless is so they "can go in and get raped by them, because they seem to like the excitement of it...". An evil sex columnist, sure, but a sex columnist nonetheless.

The crowning achievement for Dan will be when the crossword clue is " fecal-lube mix" 8 letters.
