Dear Congressperson,
I solved this puzzle - can you?

2015: Year in Review

December 30, 2015

Send it to Congress

Odd-looking grid to close out the year. It’s in honor of a U.S. congress which, it can be said, was very much 15-Across and 41-Across in 2015.

John Boehner resigns. Paul Ryan doesn’t want to be Speaker. Then he does. (Tweet/contact him this week. As Speaker, it’ll be up to him to limit how 15-Across and 41-Across Congress will be in 2016.) Also in 2015: Republicans try to defund Planned Parenthood, overturn Obamacare and win approval for the Keystone XL pipeline — none of which happens, thank goodness. There is Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi testimony. A last-minute federal budget is passed but immigration reform is not.

Too much to list here. For those who want a fuller picture of how U.S. congress was 15-Across and 41-Across in 2015, start here and, well, go from there.

Solve the puzzle. Then click on one of the tabs below the grid to use Twitter or email and send the following message: “Dear Congressman Ryan, I solved this puzzle — can you?”
