Thanks, Merl, for an entertaining and fun puzzle, siginificantly harder, I thought, than most, and very clever. All of the theme answers made sense, but I had trouble with MINUTESPLUSMOSTEL. But Orange pointed out the Zero factor.Thanks Orange for a nice write-up.
It's 60 minutes plus ZERO MostelI did a lot of googling.
Very nice Merle puzzle.I love math puzzles.
In addition to everyone else that the Times is laying off, did they include the copy editors for your puzzle? 12 Down says "Sleeps like a bear" and the answer is "hibernated". Shouldn't the clue have been "Slept like a bear"?That aside, the puzzle was fun.
