The unusual structure of this grid owes to a step I had to take when I was not satisfied with the way things were going in a previous arrangement of the black squares. Specifically, I’m talking about the zigzag in the middle. Originally, the black square in the dead center of the grid and the one above and below it weren’t there — it was two “T” shapes that made the middle three rows 6/8, 15, and 8/6 in length. At that point, all four corners, 3-Down, and 10-Down were fixed. I just wasn’t finding a grid spanner that made the rows above it and below it work. Actually, I spent way too much time trying to make it work, truth be told, until I slapped my forehead (not metaphorically… I really did) and formed the zigzag shape you see.

My favorite thing that I learned from this puzzle is in 57-Across. Sometimes company names are named after their founder, but this takes it a step further.

As always, I’d like to know, folks… comment is welcome! Come say hello! What did you like? What could I do better?

As always, share this link! Pass it around! New puzzle on Friday!
