  1. A word is a word is a word. I just love how the NYT subjectively decides which actual words will qualify to successfully complete their puzzle. It’s a daily guessing game for the people that play.

    In today’s puzzle the Times has gone one step further. Aside from the acceptable words and the unacceptable bad words, the Times has evidently decided that neither “agua” nor “unrung” qualify under either category. That’s news to Merriam-Webster.
