NY Times Puzzle - Thursday, August 9, 2012

Theme: Tic Tac Toe (23-, 24- and 45-Across)

The puzzle’s grid looks like a Tic Tac Toe board. There are many O’s scattered around the board but only three X’s which = a diagonal “win” of Tic Tac Toe.

14A. Turning point = Axle
2D. Way out = Exit

37A. Line at an airport = Taxi
29D. In distress = Vexed

64A. Turning heads, perhaps = Sexy
54D. Language known to native speakers as Gaelg = Manx

For a Thursday puzzle, I thought this one was pretty easy — easier, in fact, than the Wednesday puzzle the day before.
