Weird-looking grid, for me at least. More black squares (37) for a 72-entry grid than usual for me. Of course it began with five blocks straight across the center, but I shifted the pattern slightly to make it work with the two pairs of vertical stacked answers. I promise you, the juxtaposition of the stack of 9- and 10-Down was not intentional (though one doesn’t really have anything to do with the other, when you get down to it). It just may tickle some solvers’ funny bones, so I had to say something about it.

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

Thanks as always to the test solvers for their input.

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

  1. Needed all the downs for 51A. Then had to google poet when I finished. That cat had a lot of names. 25D right in my wheelhouse. Thanks.
