Crossword oops

I found this browsing through a comment thread about the 'controversy' brewing over the fact that the winning word for this year's Spelling Bee, 'autochthonous', was also Dictionary.com's word of the day the day before.

While people can debate the probability of that being a coincidence, someone else posted an article about a 'coincidence' dating back, appropriately enough, to D-Day. The code names for for the highly secretive D-Day plan -- Utah, Omaha, Overlord, Mulberry, Neptune -- started appearing in the Daily Telegraph crossword puzzle in the weeks prior to the invasion.
