Document 6.5: Twists and Turns

The librarian hands you a sheet of paper, saying, "We found this puzzle stuck inside a book called Cretans for Dummies." He continues, "According to some notes scribbled in the margin, it seems each row has two answers reading across, and there's a path of words winding through the maze, but it doesn't say where the path starts or what direction it's going. And I have a suspicion there's something else he's leaving out, but I just don't know what. Maybe you can take the bull by the horns and figure it out." An extremely off-color pun occurs to you revolving around the word "bull," but you wouldn't want to be non-PC, so you let it pass.
