Research has shown over and over again that engaging in mental exercise is a good way to stave off senility in old age. Playing musical instruments, writing software, working crossword puzzles, and other types of activities that require logic, physical dexterity, and memory recall are often cited as examples. There is no guarantee these things will prevent or even delay cerebral atrophy, but why take a chance? Work this crossword just to make sure. Disclaimer: I am not a doctor and am not prescribing this challenge as a remedy for potential future imbecility, daftness, tendency to dodder, mental infirmness, or senescent gray matter accumulation, nor do I suggest that starting now will reverse any of these symptoms you might already exhibit. If you really like crossword puzzles and crave more, please see my (usually) weekly RF Cafe crossword puzzles.
