It’s always nice when you can stack seed entries. 66- and 68-Across were the basis for this grid; 1- and 17-Across also came from the seed list. I die a little inside, though, whenever I have to split up stacks, like I had to do in the northeast and southwest. Those were originally three 8’s stacked with three diagonal stripes of black squares across the middle of the grid, but it wasn’t working out with one of the stacks. And when it just isn’t working out, just like in real life, you have to break it up. I cringe whenever I have to add three-letter entries that I originally didn’t think I need, but it was for the better, folks. I promise.

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!
