Wow! Less than a week into the project, and I've already managed to finish a Friday crossword. This is kinda crazy, because I had a lot of trouble with the Thursday puzzle, yesterday. I think the reason I managed to get through this one was because I had at least a couple of big clues in each quadrant, and filling in the gaps was easier.
You can tell, too from the number of little grey corners that I had to do a lot of checking on some of these words. Like for 17 Across, I had DON, and the clue was "50's-60's Sitcom Star", so initially, I had DONKNOTTS. I knew that the King and I clue was Lun THA, though, so it didn't work. But then I was second guessing myself, so I checked the word, and sure enough, I was wrong about DONKNOTTS.
Aren't we all somewhat wrong about Don Knotts, though?
