Again with the Doku

A modest request to the American media: Please stop "discovering" Su Doku. The most recent offender: the June 6 issue of New York mag, where Jim Ledbetter writes that the insanely addictive Japanese-Anglo number-box puzzle has arrived on our shores... er, that is, arrived on our shores in April, in the New York Post. (Nice "news" item, Jimmy!)

But dudes! We've been hoarding issues of the London Times since it launched Su Doku last November. And we only bother doing the "fiendish"-level puzzles. Which is a lot trickier than contriving lame-ass trend stories...
