Bill Clinton creates NY Times crossword puzzle
Bill Clinton is making his mark on the New York Times. The former President made his debut as a contributor to the Times by creating his own crossword puzzle published this weekend.
Clinton wrote the clues for the puzzle filled with puns, pop culture references and plays on words. In an editor's note, Times' puzzle editor Will Shortz wrote: "The clues in this puzzle are a little more playful and involve more wordplay than in a typical crossword. You have been warned."
"I wanted it to be Clinton's voice, not my voice," Shortz said. "I touched up a few things here and there, but basically what President Clinton wrote for the clues is what appears in the puzzle.
"His clues make you laugh out loud," he added. "He's got a flair for this."
Answers to Clinton's crossword puzzle will be published on May 11.
