Found this site by accident while trying to google some answers. Boy, did you make me feel old (41) when you didn't know what microfiche was. Didn't you ever have to look something up on micorfilm or microfiche at the library when doing a research project - you know those old machines where you have to turn the wheel to scroll across the pages? Thanks for helping with the answers! M.S. in Pennsylvania

Interesting that Mr Williams has two nom de plumes. Stanley Newman, editor of Newsday crossword puzzle also has 2. Makes one wonder if Mr Shortz may follow suit.

Found your site when I was stumped on a clue and it led me to you. I check in once a day now, even f I have solved the entire puzzle by myself. I like your witty comments.

I suppose this has been addressed earlier, but I don't know blogs. Found this site by googling.
Why did Tribune replace Wayne Robert Williams? Did he retire, or what? I was comfy with his puzzles & am pulling hair out with some of the LA Times clues.
BTW, how do I find your answer to this question?
Thanks.

OutAtheLoop in IL,
Yes, Wayne R. Williams has retired. TMS started to replace his TMS Daily with Rich Norris LA Times Daily on March 23, 2009. Be patient. It takes time to adjust to a new editor and his cluing style.
