Yesterday’s Target wordpuzzle, as always, challenged us to make words out of a central letter, in this case C, and 8 other letters, in this case UNT ENOER. I see today that YESTERDAY’S SOLUTION omitted one possible four-letter combination that appears in my dictionary. Frankly, I resent being demoted to ‘very good’ from ‘excellent’ by your newspaper’s prudery.
Here among friends I can confess that I was actually dropped to Good from Very Good. I missed ecru, cretonne, and nonce, among others.
