I confess to being a New York Times crossword puzzle junkie. Sometimes, to feed my addiction, I dip back into the archive (I do the puzzles online) to complete a puzzle I missed in the past. I was so engaged this morning, with a puzzle from April 1995. The clue was "Modern messages"--five letters with an X in the middle and an S at the end. I confidently entered TEXTS. It turns out the correct response was FAXES."Micropolitan Diary" is Gossips' homage to and blatant imitation of "Metropolitan Diary" in the New York Times. The term micropolitan was coined (by Gossips) because Hudson is a metropolis in microcosm.
