Hello,

My name is Jeremy, and I'm a documentary filmmaker living in New York. (Just moved to this city one month ago.) My interests, in descending order, include movies, contact sports, and crossword puzzles. I decided to include a little anecdote from one of my blogs (the URL isn't important). I don't think it warrants a new thread, but I wanted to mention it somewhere:
______________________________________________________________________

Among my random scraps of paper is a crossword puzzle which I took out of a New York Times "Best of" compilation book. The clue for 35-Across is: "9/11 notable"--which, at first, I assumed meant September 11th. I later noticed the puzzle was dated "Friday, July 24th, 1998", so it couldn't be a reference to September 11th. However, in solving the puzzle, it turned out the answer was 'Giuliani.'

I don't currently have an online subscription to the New York Times crossword puzzle. But I used to. And I was curious what the original clue had been, thinking it was probably some lighthearted, not very serious jab at Giuliani which somebody nonetheless felt like changing.

So I went to the archive and found the original wording of the clue. I don't remember what it was, but it was something totally innocuous--'Big Apple mayor", or something similar to that.

Now the question is why someone (and who, for that matter?) would decide to change it.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Glad to meet you all.


edit on 30-1-2011 by Eyesofthemothman because: Well, I find the new subject line more interesting.

Welcome to ATS.

Doing crossword puzzles is a good hobby and will certainly help you out around here.

Get answers for questions and see how they all connect.
See by connecting some answers, how other answers do not fit.
and see how by connecting other answers you know of, the ones you don't know start to form.

Crosswords do more than simply give you a nice distracting bathroom break or whatnot...it truely sharpens the mind on many levels.

As far as the 9/11 thing. meh...going to remain on the fence about that. not saying if it is true there is nothing to it, indeed it would be quite curious..but chances are (from my perspective), you simply misread or something...could also just be lying, etc...can never tell the motivations of anonymous.

After your 20 posts, I would recommend creating a thread based on just this and see where it goes.

What was G noted for in 1998 (or earlier) that may be police related...hmm
