People who are not in our league

MIT's very own Kiran Kedlaya is going to the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. He practices on New York Times crosswords:

For a really good solver, Monday's puzzle would take about three minutes, while Friday and Saturday puzzles would take seven to 10 minutes, says Kedlaya. Sunday's puzzle, which is larger, could take eight to 15 minutes.

Enough said.

I prefer the Wall Street Journal's myself, although that may be because it's harder for me to get my hands on a NYT.
