Regarding the Sept. 29 Free for All letters “Choice words”:
With due respect to my fellow solvers and their cross words about Evan Birnholz and his puzzles, I find his puzzles edgy, innovative and more challenging and engaging than, dare I say, those in that paper in New York.
It is about time there was a little shake-up in the world of crosswords. If one doesn’t care for his puzzles, I suggest one turn to the Los Angeles Times snoozer right there in The Post and the countless others that are more traditional puzzles.
I say keep them coming. Sharpen my mind, not just my pencil.
