As if Ben Tausig's crosswords weren't frustrating enough with their obscure references, overly cryptic clues, and utter disregard for conventional crossword wisdom (probably why I look forward to Thursdays so much--to get my fair share of abuse, etc), twice now in recent months, the last few "Down" clues have been left out. I downloaded the PDF to make sure, and it was the same there. Usually these are the easiest clues in the puzzle, which is always a relief because the "Across" words they intersect with are frequently among the most difficult.
