Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION

Keep zombis out of crossword

  • Print

I always enjoy the large special-edition crossword puzzles, but I must confess it is difficult to complete one if it contains such spelling mistakes as "pointsettia" and "zombi" in the Dec. 24 edition.

"Christmas bloom" (163 down) is actually poinsettia, named after Joel R. Poinsett (not pointsettia). And 87 down, "horror film staple," to the best of my knowledge would be zombie (not "zombi").

I would also really appreciate the inclusion of the titles of the New York Times daily crossword puzzles, as they often provide an additional clue to solving the puzzles if they are based on wordplay, anagrams, etc.

All that aside, the crossword puzzles are a great pleasure, so thank you.

Re: Juniors cruise past Dutch to set up big challenge vs USA (Dec. 30). I am sure I will not be the only one to point out to your sports headline writer that the Netherlands and Denmark are two different countries. The Netherlands does not have a team in the World junior hockey tournament but Denmark does. It was the Danes that the juniors cruised past, not the Dutch. Surely someone at the Free Press knows the difference!
