Don’t mess with the crossword puzzle!

The Brandon (Manitoba, Canada) Sun’s Grant Hamilton reports an angry subscriber threatened to sue the paper over a change in the Saturday crossword puzzle. (It’s smaller and easier.)
“Since he’d just signed up for a six-month subscription, at least partially for the crossword, he was pretty irritated, and said ‘it wouldn’t look good’ when he took us to small-claims court.

“I’m not sure the threat was serious — we didn’t get served with papers or anything.”

Hamilton says others have complained about the new crossword, too, and the paper is going back to the old puzzle beginning this weekend.
