For the past several months, I've been faithfully reading Rex Parker's delightful blog--Rex Parker Does the New York Times Crossword Puzzle. If you haven't yet discovered this informative, often irreverent, sometimes laugh-out-loud-funny blog, get yourself to http://rexwordpuzzle.blogspot.com/.
Rex will spend the next week basking on the beaches in Mexico, sipping Margaritas with his lovely wife. In the meantime, the blog will go on with five guest bloggers trying to fill his shoes. I'll be one of them, giving it my best shot on Monday and Tuesday.
