Happy Friday everyone. This themeless puzzle was seeded with something I desperately wanted to have in a puzzle. And I think Grid Therapy is the perfect place for it because the time between the idea coming into my mind to the time it’s posted for you to solve here is typically days. As opposed to a couple of years in a big publication. That allows for things to be in these puzzles that perhaps aren’t evergreen but sure are fun right now. I think you’ll likely find this one on the easier side as themelesses go. I hope you enjoy!
I'm a husband, father, psychologist, musician, and crossword constructor living in Catonsville, MD. My puzzles have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times and its syndicates, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Andrews McMeel Universal Syndicate, and crossword apps such as the Redstone Crossword Puzzle App on iOS and Google Play. All of that means I've been published in every newspaper in the United States and many others around the world. And now I've been published here at Grid Therapy, which allows me the amazing freedom to let who I am shine through. Maybe it will occasionally rub you the wrong way politically. I don't know. But in this space I get to not care. I hope you enjoy your time here on the crossword couch! I'd love to hear from you if you have comments or suggestions.
