No longer puzzling

Alzheimer’s sufferers, take note:

While there is still time, you should consider solving the sudoku in the Aspen Daily News. The paper’s long-standing policy — which continues unabated in the new year — of endlessly recycling the same puzzles, week after week, gives you a distinct edge: while you are likely to see the same puzzles pretty regularly, you will do so each time with fresh eyes. As the darkness descends upon you, I can think of no greater solace — except, perhaps, the pleasure of hiding your own Easter eggs.
