OK, I don't think this has ever happened to me before. I have the entire LA Times Sunday cross-word done except for one letter!
78a Current events -- i?dies
62d Botch -- mis? o

All the letters are corrects. No questions about any of them.
Ideas? Hints? Solutions?

@Lustig Andrei,
I'm guessing the one is misdo.

@Lustig Andrei,
Oh, I miss the NYT and LAT sunday crosswords. Trouble is, I don't like online crossword puzzles, I want paper in front of me.

Anyway 78a - still thinking
62d - misdo?

edit, like rockhead, I think that means 78a has a problem..

MISDO! Yes! It makes 78a EDDIES (for "current events).

Thankee, all.

78a: i?dies can only be one word, "INDIES", so I respectfully suggest there is a letter wrong somewhere

62d = MISGO or MISDO

Right as rain, Dutchy. In 78a the initial 'i' should have been 'e' instead. Confusion (in my mind) between 'psychosis' and 'psychoses.' Thank you.

@Rockhead,
Put yer specs on, Rock. The red ribbon is right next to your name. Sglass has been having some serious computer trouble lately and so isn't posting anywhere that's not a matter of life-and-death (ok, so I exaggerate). Thx for asking.
