Started off with the rather surprising answer 23-Down in today's puzzle. Surprising not because of the word per se. Surprising because I usually put the marquee answer at 1-Across. It originally was at 1-Across, but as I was building the puzzle, and falling in love with the stack that was being formed, I realized that the only way the crossings were going to work was if I moved the whole stack to another location. Weird how that works sometimes. And so, we have ourselves a rather random-looking crossword pattern. Still, loads of fun stuff in there, as there'd better be with 72 answers. Hope you enjoy it.
Share the puzzle. New one on Thursday.
