Yes, I think you're right, but I can't see how this compiler can explain how !!

Brood,
I've given up doing this crossword. So many of the clues seem to have no rational explanation. Too often you know that your answer must be right but either you have no idea why or it is so tenuous that it is a joke. I think what annoyed me the most was the over-use of common christian names for no particular reason other than to make life easier for the compiler.

thanks terry .. i regard myself as a fairly competent crossword solver .. been doing daily express for years and just recently came back to sunday express .. the skeleton is totally incomprehensible .. even checking back on previous weeks clues and compilers answers it still gets my goat .. the Crusader and his Squire can be odd .. the cryptic clues just dont match with quickies .. soooooooo frustrating

i agree with you terry, although i eventually manage to complete it each, many of the answers are difficult to justify.

Biker,
I follow the man/ian bit. But.
Couldn't the in a state bit mean "nai" in OR. Or being the abbreviation of Oregon.
You see what I mean though about chucking in any old name to make a clue add up.
