Start with what you know

We know Bill Clinton is good at crossword puzzles; he's pretty good at writing them too. His first set of clues appeared in the New York Times the other week.

Will Shortz notes: "The clues in this puzzle are a little more playful and involve more wordplay than in a typical crossword. You have been warned."

For example: Social events for flirts? Teas, of course.

I'm out of the habit of doing crosswords in recent years. I'm still working on this one, in little sections over coffee breaks. I'm rediscovering an old love.

Follow Bill's advice for problem-solving, be it crossword or life: Start with what you know.
