CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Former President Bill Clinton can add another talent to his resume: Crossword puzzle writer.
The Chappaqua resident wrote The New York Times crossword for Friday, May 12, along with Arkansas District Court Judge Victor Fleming. According to the Times, (story here ), he is the first U.S. president to publish one.
Judge Fleming, a longtime friend of Clinton's, created the grid with assistance from the former president who was the one behind the clues.
Clinton is an accomplished crossword solver who was featured in the 2006 documentary “Wordplay."
This is the fourth “Celebrity Crossword” that The Times has run. Previous ones were created by the actor Jesse Eisenberg, the astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson of North Salem and the pianist Emanuel Ax.
Pleasantville resident Will Shortz is the Times' crossword editor.
