THEME: Intersections
The paper version of this puzzle has some black squares replaced with “traffic signals”. These signals are red in one direction and green in the other. The themed “GO/GREEN” answers span the traffic signal and use the word GREEN. The themed STOP/RED” answers use the word RED, but stop at the traffic signal. Well, that is except for the answer RUNNING A RED LIGHT, aptly enough:

Bill, HELP! This is not the Sunday June 19, 2016 puzzle. I only had a,couple of words to check, but I miss your comments. Please berate the website and get the right puzzle back.
Andrea Bergstrom, loyal fan.

Hi there, Andrea.

I'm out of the country right now, and can't be sure about what happened with today's puzzle. I suspect that some local papers published an older puzzle because the one scheduled for today involved color printing of special squares in the grid. If you tell me the first few clues in your puzzle, maybe we can find the answers for you.

Bill Butler said...


I am pretty sure that at least one local paper used this puzzle as an alternative offering today. Maybe that will help.

Robert said...

That's the one my gannett paper ran, 0721-13.

Dave Kennison said...

The Denver Post also ran 0721-13.

Dave Kennison said...

And they left out the clue for 115D!

This was a pretty stupid puzzle..........some of the clues, that is.

Andrea and Bill - I get my my NYT Xwords from the Seattle Times website, and they are published 6 weeks after they originally run in the NYT. Maybe Andrea's source is running a few weeks behind schedule also. Good luck!

About This Blog

This is the simplest of blogs.

I do the New York Times puzzle online every evening, the night before it is published in the paper. Then, I "Google & Wiki" the references that puzzle me, or that I find of interest. I post my findings, along with the solution, as soon as I am done, usually well before the newsprint version becomes available.

About Me

The name's William Ernest Butler, but please call me Bill. I grew up in Ireland, but now live out here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am retired, from technology businesses that took our family all over the world.

I try to answer all emails, so please feel free to email me at

Crosswords and My Dad

I worked on my first crossword puzzle when I was about 6-years-old, sitting on my Dad's knee. He let me "help" him with his puzzle almost every day as I was growing up. Over the years, Dad passed on to me his addiction to crosswords. Now in my early 50s, I work on my Irish Times and New York Times puzzles every day. I'm no longer sitting on my Dad's knee, but I feel that he is there with me, looking over my shoulder.

This blog is dedicated to my Dad, who passed away at the beginning of this month.
