Do you play Wordle?
The guy who invented it had longer range vision than the New York Times.
Today's Wordle - scheduled months ago - was to be FETUS.
Last week, the Times looked ahead and decided they'd better change that.
Which raises questions.
The Times bought the game in January. That's three months to review future games for words that might cause a problem.
Why didn't they catch it sooner?
How far in the future had the inventor gone when he sold the game?
Using fetus as an answer is bound to create controversy if you're doing something on the internet nobody reads. Much less a game you find becoming popular as you share it.
But don't worry, Wordle fans.
The Times aborted fetus before most people played today's game.
