Memo to: Will Shortz

Re: NY Times Crossword puzzle for Monday, October 22.

1. There is no such thing as clam bisque. Okay, well, maybe there is, but up here in New England we have CRAB bisque and clam chowder. Or Chowdah. It was a very misleading clue, especially for a Monday. Do you know how much crossing out I had to do because the answer should have been CRAB bisque?

2. Little Bo Peep lost her SHEEP. Not her ewe, her ram, and her lamb. HER SHEEP.

Thank you for your attention. Carry on.

Clams, crabs, whatever - Bossy would never throw it out of her bisque.

Did you ever see that documentary about the crossword puzzlers - featured Shortz... and Bossy's husband Bill Clinton.
