Give Students What They Want: Better Sudoku

    Dear Editor,

    I have always regarded the Guardian as a well-run and well-written newspaper. Succinct and to-the-point news columns, entertaining movie reviews, heated opinions and the occasionally confusing comic strip have all become a joy to read between classes. However, during class there is a certain section of the newspaper that is near and dear to my heart and, I’m sure, to many other students at UCSD: sudoku. Accompanied by his friend and relative, the crossword puzzle, these two mind games have carried me through lectures for more than two years. Unfortunately, the first few editions of the Guardian this year have started off on shaky ground. First week, there was no puzzle, which was devastating to say the least. The following Thursday edition came out guns blazing with two level-four puzzles, far too difficult to solve in one class. This week was no better, featuring two level-one ones, much too easy to fill a full class period. I hope these rare mishaps are merely a symptom of the beginning of the school year. On behalf of those of us who depend on these precious puzzles to survive, I hope an adjustment can be made.
