I've noticed that the level of difficulty, which used to be included at the bottom of the puzzle, has been omitted. I do the puzzle in the Washington Post. I don't know if this is "Pappocom-wide" or just in my newspaper. On Mondays & Tuesdays, the puzle was "easy." On Wednesdays & Thursdays, it was "medium." And on Fridays & Saturdays, the puzzle was "hard."
The difficulty rating served as a helpful guide to me. On Mondays & Tuesdays, I would skip the puzzle because it was too easy. Please restore the difficulty rating.
