I found this article about Buzzfeed. They will be producing a daily crossword starting mid-October. Their editor in chief is a 22 year old Yale grad who interned under Mr. Will Shortz when he was 16. I thought it was an interesting article.

It's heartening to me to see a younger generation connecting with puzzles. It's definitely a good habit to acquire! Great article too - thanks for sharing with us!

Interesting article, but what is the "Sunday breakfast test?"

Amy,

I worked in newspapers for a time. The idea behind the "Sunday Breakfast Test" is to not put something in the paper that would upset or disturb people while eating their breakfast (although the most common concern would be the front page, which is more prominent). So a particularly vulgar, gross or potentially objectionable item would be avoided if there was a better way to get the point across.

Unfortunately Buzzfeed seems to be shut down for good now. Any other good alternatives?
