"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
I noticed this one too when it was published the week before last. Wonderfully natural English in the answers, a real credit to the constructor, Daniel Larsen.
I very much enjoyed it too.
There is a website xwordinfo.com dedicated to a database and stats about the NYT puzzle. Incredibly, there was once a puzzle with only 17 blocks. The same constructor, as well as others, made a puzzle with twelve 15-letter entries.
Thank you, Gary K, for that link. Lots of fascinating info there.
