You’ll notice that, in the 10-stacks on the sides, I have three 3-letter entries in a row intersecting them (27/32/35A, 39/42/45A). Normally, I try to avoid that, but I’ll tell you what was to blame: both 4-Down and 38-Down. The way the upper left and lower right stacks formed, those two down answers had to be eight letters. Also, it wasn’t too advantageous for the spaces now split by 25/27-Across and 45/46-Across to remain eight letters long, so I had no choice but to leave in those strips of black where they are. It all worked out for the better, though (but I suppose you all will be the true judge of that…).

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!
