  1. So ‘Turpitude means ‘lethargy’, DA? (Quick crossword, 6/1)
    Have you contrived this new portmanteau word perhaps combining ‘torpor’ and ‘lassitude’ (the latter containing precisely the right number of letters to correctly solve the clue). In any case, I decry your ‘vile and depraved act’ in supplying a misleading clue.

  2. David Johnston,
    Could be that, yet again, there’s an error in the solution, both on-line and in the print version. This happened with the cryptic recently. As the U doesn’t intersect with anything else, it looks like it was meant to be O. I wonder about the type-setter’s spellchecker. Turpitude trumps torpitude?

  3. Looks like it. Trust DA to intend that ‘torpitude’, in most dictionaries deemed to be obsolete, should have been the word.
