I write concerning what I believe to be a misprint in clue 23 Down of Puzzle 3193. It reads "caught in a trap in Hyderabad...," but I believe it ought to read "caught in a trap at Hyderabad" for it would that way contain what I believe to be the answer to that clue: APATHY (which is justified by the second part of the clue: "what you feel when you couldn't care less" and by the context of the puzzle). I do not understand the clue as it is. But if "in" were changed to "at," it would make perfect sense.

[Editor's Note: You are absolutely right. This has been corrected in the online version, and in the PDF of the issue.]
