To mark the 75th anniversary of the New York Times crossword, which debuted in 1942, we are publishing a series of puzzles cocreated by famous people who solve the Times crossword, working together with regular Times puzzle contributors.
This collaboration is by the comedian and television personality Joy Behar, a co-host of ABC’s “The View,” working together with Lynn Lempel, of Daytona Beach, Fla. This is Ms. Lempel’s 79th crossword for The Times.
