NYT Crossword Special March 2020 Equal Pay Day Complete

There’s no WSJ Friday puzzle, so here’s a special puzzle from NYT from March of this year.

Overall easy, which seems always to be the case for the special puzzles. I don’t mind that. I finished this one in 6:49. And, like the other special puzzles, it taught me something.

14A Music genre from the Caribbean: SOCA

So what even is soca? I’d never heard of it. It’s Soul of Calypso from Trinidad. Its creator, Ras Shorty I, formerly Lord Shorty, born Garfield Blackman, died 20 years and a little more than two weeks ago. He had 14 kids. That’s a lot of kids!

Have a great weekend, everybody! It’s supposed to be a hot one here in the other Southern California.

I'm a guy living the #raabidfun lifestyle. I figured I would create a blog about crossword puzzles I do. The idea is to do the NYT crossword and the WSJ crossword daily as much as I can. That includes when I don't finish and have clearly failed. They can be difficult.
