    You took away my daily paper and I adjusted, you took away my comics, so I have to amuse myself now and some days I am not up to it. Now you have taken away my cross word puzzle. If this is permanent , you will have caused a serious gap in my life style, because at my age a puzzle amuses me for a couple of days, until the wife steals it and finishes it. SO WHAT'S UP ???
