Guardians Concern Crossword Clue 4 Letters
Word of the day: GABE Pressman (11D: TV journalist Pressman with Peabody and 11 Emmys) – Gabriel Stanley “Gabe” Pressman (February 14, 1924 – June 23, 2017) was an American journalist, reporter for WNBC-TVin. New York for over 60 years. His career spanned over seven decades; events he covered included the sinking of the Andrea Doriain in 1956, the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., the Beatles’ first trip to the United States, and the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. He was one of the pioneers of US television news and is considered the first reporter to leave the studio to “street report” at the scene of major events. Nicknamed “The Dean of Journalism of New York”, Pressman has won numerous awards, including a Peabody Award and 11 Emmy Awards, and has been considered a New York City icon. (wikipedia)

Must be some kind of printing error. The downs don’t make any sense if the HIP and HIP occupy completely different squares, so I figured the newspaper version of the puzzle should have used larger cells, such as a two-tiered cell for “H”, “I”, and “P”, so they could be part of both Acrosses, but still represent only one letter in Downs. But that’s not what the newspaper version looks like. It also has HIP next to HIP. So I’m back to the first and most obvious problem, which is…the crosses. Downs. They don’t make sense. Full stop. End. I honestly don’t understand how the Downs can be so neglected. The grid is now full of nonsense like AIIR and TEPPID. Confusing. Last week, NYTXW really lost its bearings. The puzzles were either extremely weak or lazily executed. Not sure I’ve ever seen such a summery dump of puzzles. We’re on a tough run right now. I hope it’s all over. Tomorrow is Friday. Hope is born forever on Fridays.
I got the concept of the theme early… or so I thought. See, I’m one of those people who think that Acrosses *and* Downs make sense, so my first thought was that Downs should work and that the trick should have something to do with leaving certain squares blank. Here’s what my puzzle looked like in just half a minute or so:
REAB RESTORATION TEPID. I got a RAT (1A: Bad singer?) and then immediately got *all* those Downs. When one didn’t fit, I figured I was wrong, but when they all didn’t fit, and they all didn’t fit in exactly the same way, I “knew” what was disappearing – The subject line in motion. When I saw that the long Across at the top was HIPPOPOTAMUSES , I understood “HIP” and just jumped (hip-hop!) to the line above (i.e. to HIPSTERS ), so the topic must have something to do with hips” (up, down… from side to side?). But apparently the hips are *really* lying because those hips don’t move; instead they just sit next to other hips trying to convince me that monsters like ARIISE and DOPPED are real words. I just can’t forgive the puzzle for making me fill in those squares, thus killing downs crossing hip hop. Aside from the theme, I found the northeast corner very challenging, but other than that it was quite normal, maybe even easy for a Thursday. In NE I got EGOS, ENRAGE and DRESS SIZE , but really struggled to get TEX (maybe wanted NEB?), WEIMAR, INCUBUS, ICEBOX and especially GABE , which is… like anyone outside of New York of the last century found out who it is? He seems like a local media legend, but yes. Come on. You are an international puzzle. There are many GABEs in the world. Okay, there are a few GABEs in the world. You can find one famous outside of the tri-state area, I promise you. Anyway, GABE, of course.
P.S. oh hey, I forgot to mention that the Boswords tournament is taking place *this weekend* (July 25th). Here is the announcement from tournament organizer John Lieb:
Will Wordle Still Be Free After The New York Times Buyout?
Registration is now open for the Boswords Summer Tournament 2021, which will take place on Sunday, July 25th. This event will be ONLINE ONLY. Solvers may compete individually or in pairs. To register, view a list of constructors and get more information, go to www.boswords.org, where puzzles from past tournaments can also be purchased. A portion of the proceeds goes to local Boston charities. The project involved cool designers such as Malaika Handa and Wayna Liu. You should definitely check this out. Our series for those who are cryptically tempted or terrified shows what happens when you are asked to use the last letters.
In the prompt examples below, I explain the two parts of each: the definition of the answer given in
, and a play on words is a recipe for assembling letters. Of course, in a real puzzle environment, you also have overlapping letters, which will make your task of solving much easier. The explanations contain links to previous entries in this series on issues such as spelling one word backwards to reveal another. And the names of the setters are usually associated with interviews if you want to get to know these people better.
This time the setter is asking you to pay attention to the letter at the end of some word and do something with it. Here is a recent example from Pan:
The Ultimate Guide To Writing A Medical School Personal Statement In 2022: What Not To Write In Your Personal Statement And 6 Other Things You Didn’t Know You Didn’t Know
1a A cunning animal that gets food last (6) [pun: animal name + last letter of FOOD] [CONSTRUCTION + D] [definition: cunning]
You’d rather think of a BATTLE from a definition or crossed letters than immediately imagine that the animal Pan is referring to is a particular nasal insectivore: sometimes you get the answer from a pun, and sometimes you use a pun to confirm your hunch .
Of course, the setter can hide the instruction to take the last letter so that your reward, when delayed, will be larger. Here is the Philistine:
19a Providing resources for entertainment at the ends of the earth (4) [pun: synonymous with entertainment + last letter of EARTH] [FUN + D] [definition: providing resources for]
Image 36 Of New York Journal And Advertiser (new York [n.y.]), July 23, 1899
Once we stop seeing “Earth’s End” as a name, we’ll add FUN for FUND. It’s from Saturday’s prize puzzle, a reminder that the weekend isn’t full of nasty unsolvable clues; their answers are also accompanied by annotated solutions in case something needs to be clarified.
And the device can be combined with one of the others that we have considered here, as an anagram, or putting one thing inside another. Here is Pavel in another prize…
19a Parental care for the baby, finally (6) [pun: synonymous with parent, containing (o) the last letter of the word CHILD] [MOTHER containing T] [definition: care]
Put something inside. Here is Matilda in quiptic, a Guardian riddle “for beginners and in a hurry”:
Pluto: Nasa Probe Set For Fly Past Of Frozen ‘dwarf Planet’
25a For good or ill, it’s ridiculously brave to go around the Land’s End (6) [pun: an anagram of (‘ridiculous’) BRAVE, containing (“get around”) the last letter of the word EARTH] [FLUSHING, containing D] [definition: what ” good” and “bad” are examples]
So, this is ADVERT, a reminder that it’s not always obvious where the definition is, and another long-awaited appearance of Land’s End. Finally, for now it’s worth checking that you shouldn’t take the last letter of more than one word. That’s what Nutmeg is looking for in his clue…
25d Last pickers who have not yet sorted fruit (4) [pun on: last letters of the words COLLECTORS YET BEFORE and SORTING] [definition: fruit]
… for SLOE. In all these examples, other words could have given the last letter. A cunning animal might get the last piece of plywood; the harvester could ignore the fruit, but then the superficial readings of the clues would lack meaning and charm.

Any questions? Do you, experienced solvers, have a favorite way of indicating the last letter? I like anatomical models: heels and tails, and, in a pinch, the bottom. Incidentally, the similar but different processes we’ve looked at here include selecting the first and last letters, selecting only the first letter, and selecting alternative letters.
