PUZZLE 17

Puzzle 17 – “Left to My Own Devices”

puz here / pdf here / solution here

A new themeless this week. Seed entry here was 1-Across (a longtime favorite of mine, and the source of the title); you might also detect a different musical mini-theme running through a couple entries. This puzzle includes what might be my single favorite clue I’ve ever written (at 12-Down) as well as some good trivia to liven up some short fill at 25-Down and 61-Down. Please enjoy, comments welcome, happy solving.

  1. If, when, why, what?
    How much have you got?

  2. As a fan of the problematic film, In the Heat of the Night, I appreciate the key quote of the film’s inclusion. Easier to fit than “You saw it. What you gonna do about it?” Also, the Heard it Thru the Grapevine trivia is indeed a gem.
