Monday, April 14, 2014
Constructor: Gareth Bain
Relative difficulty: Easy-Medium (I have no idea; I solved on paper because stupid .puz file was "corrupt," and can't really gauge Monday "difficulty" when I solve on paper … beyond "yeah, it's Monday, so of course it's easy…")
THEME: THAIR??? — homophones??? Is that it? I guess so.
- "THERE YOU GO AGAIN" (17A: Famous debate words from Reagan to Carter)
- THEIR FINEST HOUR (37A: Churchill's description of the Royal Air Force during W.W. II)
- "THEY'RE GRRRRREAT!" (58A: Endorsement from Tony the Tiger) (this spelling is either arbitrary or inaccurate. The cereal boxes I'm seeing have three "R"s. If you go with five "R"s, you should have some basis for doing so … perhaps there is one, but I have no idea what it is)
