Dear Congressperson,
I solved this puzzle - can you?


July 6, 2016

A nod this week to Reid Hoffman, cofounder of LinkedIn, for his recent piece on the Senate’s continued refusal to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court. Hoffman rightly condemns Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell “and his allies” for what is essentially “a year-long strike.” Hoffman then writes:

“Imagine if entire departments at Fortune 500 companies announced they were going to stop performing key functions of their job for a year or more, with no possibility of moving forward until a new CEO took over. Investors would start dumping their stock. Customers would seek out alternatives. Competitors would make these companies pay for such dysfunctional gridlock. Eventually executives and employees would be fired.”

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