Our family loves working on the puzzles in The Epoch Times each week. However, we all struggle with solving the crossword puzzles. We are left exasperated trying to figure out the answers to the clues. We are educated people, but each puzzle leaves us feeling defeated and ignorant. We are not asking for easier puzzles, but if the puzzle creator could make the clues more straight forward, we may be able to complete at least one puzzle and feel some sense of accomplishment.
