My mother, Joan, called me one day in 1998 to ask if I had seen the New York Times crossword puzzle for that day. I used to do the Times crossword every day (except for Sundays) during the late 80s. I hadn't looked at the puzzle yet that day and so my mother said, "Check out the puzzle today." I looked at it and noticed that the clue to 14 across was: "Tell______ My Heart (1987 hit)." I remember thinking, "Wow, I made the Times crossword!"
