This is the puzzle that was originally intended for Tuesday, but was supplanted due to that unfortunate and more important event that saddened us earlier in the week. Construction for this grid most certainly started in the upper right, as you will probably be able to tell after you solve it. 5-Across and 18-Across, namely, were the absolute origins. 64-Across, 47-Across, and 23-Across were mini-seeds that came out during the construction, as well.
My favorite thing that I learned from this puzzle is in the clue at 56-Down. Any time you see someone described as both a gangster and a philanthropist, you know you’ve got an interesting person.
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 freestyle on Tuesday!
