New York Times Puzzles

 Mr. Will Shortz

Starting July 7 - or just some other nonce date - The New York Times will start charging people who buy their print edition a fee to access the crossword puzzles on-line. Hitherto, we have done the Sunday "puzz" (as we call it) on Saturday evening, since the puzz goes up on the web at 6:00 PM EST.
We have applied ourselves while the British series As Time Goes By plays on WTVS, public TV.

Now we shall have to wait until Sunday for the print edition to be delivered. This means the one hour or so spent on the puzz will bite into Sunday. It is also a "tax" upon subscribers, essentially a "double dip" into our pockets.

We do not like it, we shall not pay the extra. Occupy Will's Shortz!
