72 worder today. That's the upper limit for themeless word count, and as such it is easier to cram full of good stuff. Pretty sure almost every section has at least one entry that is fun. Is there a mini-theme in there? Probably not, but if you believe in the axiom of "write what you know," and what you know about me, you can expect certain things in the grid. Anyway, for those that care, the combo answer/clue at 12-Down is my favorite. But you probably coulda guessed that already.
Thanks to all who wrote in about potential diagramless puzzles. Expect an announcement soon. Get yr. checkbooks ready.
Share the puzzle. New one on Thursday.
