The seed entry for this grid came about in an unusual way. When I was writing the clues for a recent grid, I came upon this word you’ll see at 60-Across and initially used it in the clue for a particular entry that I was researching. I really don’t like rewriting¬† clues once I’ve got them in place. But I really liked the word to put in a grid, and I figure it would have raised some alarm bells that this new, weird word was just in a clue a week or two ago and now it’s in the grid.

Thanks so much to all who’ve left a tip! It’s much appreciated, believe me.

Thanks as always to the test solvers for their input.
