Links worth clicking – the best resume, crosswords by Brendan Emmett Quigley, OJ facts

  • If you do crosswords regularly, especially the New York Times one, you know that a lot of the answers are rather arcane, relying on a knowledge base that includes memorization of things like Latin words and bible book names. Brendan Emmett Quigley creates crosswords for the rest of us. His puzzles are clever and current. Yesterday’s included clues like “Rush drummer Neil ____” (PEART)  and “#2” (POO). I highly recommend Emmett’s puzzles for crossword vets and newbies.
  • I didn’t pay much attention to the OJ Simpson trial when it happened, so I keep wondering how faithful to the facts The People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story is. There are so many ludicrous moments, and it turns out that most of them really happened. Rolling Stone’s fact-checking recaps come in very handy in sorting it all out, though they can’t tell you if the Roberts (Shapiro and Kardashian) are as awesome as John Travolta and David Schwimmer portray them to be.
