W E D N E S D A Y   August 18, 2010 Dan Naddor

[I'm having some technical difficulties this morning. This is all I can do for now. Will try to get an actual write-up posted later this afternoon.]

Theme answers:
  • 16A: Some den boxes (CABLE CONVERTERS).
  • 22A: Hookups to many electronic devices (POWER ADAPTORS).
  • 35A: Jacob Riis et al. (SOCIAL REFORMERS).
  • 44A: Currency pros (MONEY CHANGERS).
  • 55A: Insurance investigators (CLAIMS ADJUSTERS).
Crosswordese 101: I know we've talked briefly about OBIES before, but today I want to give this word its day in the CW101 sun. OBIES, or Off-Broadway Theater Awards, are presented annually by the Village Voice, a New York weekly newspaper that I always think of as "alternative," though I'm not entirely sure what that means. OBIES are generally clued as "Village Voice awards," "Theater awards," "Tony's cousins," or 45D: Big Apple awards.

Other crosswordese in the puzzle that we've already covered:
  • 19A: Mimi's "mine" (À MOI).
  • 52D: Airline to Tel Aviv (EL AL).
