As we all found out, this week (yesterday) the New York Times would publish a crossword puzzle to commemorate 75 years of puzzles. And it was invented by Ben's cousin -- 13 years old and the youngest crossword constructor in Times history.
Very, very cool. But even better - the New York Times took the time to write not one - but TWO articles about it, highlighting the experience and achievement by young Daniel.
Take a read - very cute! I really like the description of what the author himself was doing at that age in the second article. While I have met many of Ben's relatives over the years, I haven't met young Daniel but look forward to it at Ben's graduation this year.

Story 2: Archenemy of Buggs Bunny (the theme of the puzzle)
