A Physics Puzzle:

Today is the 100th anniversary of Einstein's publication of the paper containing "E=mc^2." (Actually, Einstein wrote "mass diminishes by L/c^2", where L is used instead of E to represent energy, and if you multiply both sides by c^2 you get the formula we're familiar with.)

In honor of the 100th anniversary, I wrote a crossword for today's New York Times celebrating the equation.

If you can't get hold of a copy of the Times, email me at [mylastname] and I'll send you a pdf.

Good one! Took me 11 minutes, which is a lot for a Tuesday. Which prompts the question: when you submit a puzzle, do you say "Here's a Tuesday puzzle", or does Will Shortz just go through them and sort them by difficulty?

I agree, seemed unusually hard for a Tuesday. Plus, that SAT thing was just mean! And I say that as a college student who should have been paying attention to the score changes.
