Send it to Congress

Last Friday, Congressman Bill Flores (R-TX) issued this statement: “By denying the construction of the [circled letters in this grid], President Obama once again put the wishes of radical environmentalists ahead of the pressing needs of hardworking American families. His unfortunate action says no to the creation of thousands of new jobs.”

Same day, over at fivethirtyeight.com: “The U.S. job market had its best month of the year in October … Employers added 271,000 jobs … far more than most economists expected.”

That’s okay, Congressman Flores. Even if the jobs report had stunk — those circled letters look a lot better spanning a crossword grid than they would bisecting North America.

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 Flores, I solved this puzzle — can you?”
