Hard puzzle

Did Corey consider what to do if Marlowe couldn't solve the critical parts of the puzzle? (I'm a pretty good puzzler and couldn't do it.)

Hi, What did the people at the office say when you went back to give them their paper or the money for it? Also, Corey, do you like doing crosswords? Who is the best at them?  Thanks, Amy

Q.

Post proposal

How did you convince the Post crossword puzzle guru to craft the puzzle? Did you know him? Did you pay him?
Q.

Congrats and What are the chances?

From one geeky crossword lover to another, this is a great story. I started reading because the name sounded really familiar to me, and if you'll indulge a bit of a Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon moment, I'm wondering if Marlowe went to summer arts camp at Brevard College in 1992 or 1993? 'Cause that would be wacky.
