Ruined By Google

Bob Harris and Arthur Phillips have created a beautiful puzzle for the New York Times which you can solve online. However, I think it would be far harder and more enjoyable in a world without search engines. I for one don't store anything in my brain anymore.

It also comes with a bonus op-ed by each of them.

Got all but 4 of the clues (am banging my head on my desk for not getting the French word; never watched the SF show; dog breed, meh; and my Italian cooking is largely limited to opening a bag o' pasta and a jar of sauce). No Google involved.

Fun puzzle.
