Letter: Crossed-up crossword
Whilst doing your Sunday crossword puzzle (Jan. 17), I realized that the clues and the puzzle are two different puzzles. For example, number 23 across “—borealis” the answer should be ‘aurora’ but there is no 23 across only a 23 down.
Also on the puzzle, the last across number is 165 but the clues only go to 164. Lastly, there are many other mistakes in this crossword. Some of the answers do work just out of luck or coincidence. I hope that you will take more care while putting together your crossword and other parts of your newspaper.

Editor’s note: The clues for Sunday’s crossword actually were from a different puzzle than the one that ran. It was a production error.
