Word of the Day: OHIO ART(2D: Toy company that made Etch A Sketch a success) — The Ohio Art Company is an American toy manufacturing company founded in 1908. Based in Bryan, Ohio, the company primarily in two lines of business. The first line of business is the sale, marketing, and distribution of toys. The second line of business is the company’s Diversified Products segment that produces custom metal lithography products for the food container and specialty premium markets. Examples of this are food cans, enclosures, DVD cases, and nostalgic signs. […] In the late 1950s, a French electrician named André Cassagnes created a drawing toy that used a joystick, glass and aluminum powder. The combination, which he calls “Telecran”, gives users the ability to draw a picture and also erase it. After many collaborations with many individuals, the system they developed in the late 1950s is the only one in use today. The name of the product is Etch A Sketch. (wikipedia)

Sorry, short write up today. Forgot to set the alarm. I woke up at 3 o’clock because my legs were cramped because the kitten (we got a second kitten, did I know that?) was sleeping next to me and I couldn’t roll over without being squeezed, yes, working hard , and even then I thought “well, it’s 3 something, and I got up, it’s like I started the puzzle early,” and then it’s almost 6 and I apparently forgot to set my alarm for 5 and then I had to feed the cats before they starved me to death and now we’re good. Giant opening sentence. Still: short writing. I can’t think of anything closer than government agencies—it’s a necessary evil in crosswords, because it’s useful/necessary for working out the little three-letter crannies in the structure of grid, but no one likes it. Initials, especially government initialisms, are boring. Yaw. Now here is a whole puzzle based on them! Enjoy! In these answers, they are actually *government agency* bonds. “Governments” are things like “republics” and “monarchies” and, uh, ochlocracies and so on. The concept does not interest me thematically, and the three letter agencies are arbitrary. Aside from NEAT FREAK , the answers they resulted in weren’t very interesting. Also, again, the editor or someone decided it would be nice to use a “?” clue a themer when other themers are not clued that way. Always awesome. It was never a terrible decision. Unless your theme requires a “?” hints for *all* themes, get your “?”s in your system full—there’s a lot of it! Enter a “?” on one theme and not the others just confuses things. Boo.
OHIO ART is awesome. I’m sure I’ve seen it before and complained about it before, but it’s not popular. Maybe so, but no. Also, you have a toy that hit in the ’50s and we need to remember your ridiculous, long, unintuitive 7-letter name? Nothing about Etch A Sketch says OHIO and almost nothing about it says ART. If you’re desperate enough to have it, at least, I don’t know, there’s something in the sign that indicates there’s a midwestern state in there or something. “… named after the state it’s based in,” is something. It’s ancient and arcane and takes up a ton of real estate. Yuck. Send INAREA back to where it came from (55A: How Russia ranks first among all countries). It’s really horrible. Surprised it’s legal. IN HEIGHT? INWEIGHT? POPULATION? You see how crazy this is, right? Makes INOT seem like a good filler (it’s not). The first thing I got on the grid was PAREN (oof) and that was clearly a bad omen. Or a trendsetter, I guess, as the rest of the puzzle about that is interesting. Most grids actually hold up well, to be fair, but there’s no joy to be had now. ACT NICE I almost like it (25D: Show decorum). Oh, LEAD DOG , I love dogs, that’s great (42D: Iditarod pace setter). And NEAT FREAK, as I said, is good. But I don’t know how you want to take one of the more boring aspects of solving crosswords (ie the negotiation of 3-letter government agencies) and make a whole puzzle out of it, especially one with a fully anti-scintillating revealer. such as GOVERNMENT BOND. Harrumph. I will play with the kittens. Good day. The Hebrew word for dreidel is sevivon, which, as in Yiddish, means “to turn away.” Dreidels have four Hebrew letters on them, and they stand for the saying, Nes gadol haya sham, meaning A great miracle happened there. In Israel, instead of the fourth letter shin, there is peh, which means that the saying Nes gadol haya po— A great miracle happened here.
Playing dreidel is a traditional Hanukkah game played in Jewish homes around the world, and the rules can vary. Here’s how to play the basic dreidel game:
2. Each player starts the game with an equal number of game pieces (about 10-15) such as pennies, nuts, chocolate chips, raisins, matchsticks, etc.

3. At the beginning of each round, each participant places a game piece into the central “pot.” Additionally, whenever the pot is empty or has only one game piece left, each player must place one in the pot.
4. Each time it’s your turn, spin the dreidel once. Depending on its side, you give or take game pieces from the pot. For those who don’t read Hebrew, some dreidels also have a transliteration for each letter. If yours isn’t, use the photo below as a cheat sheet:
A) Nun means “nisht” or “nothing.” The player can do nothing. b) Gimel means “gantz” or “all.” The player gets everything in the pot. c) Hey means “halb” or “half.” The player gets half of the pot. (If there is an odd number of pieces in the pot, the player takes half of the total plus one). d) Shin (outside Israel) means “shtel” or “to enter.” Peh (in Israel) means “to enter.” The player adds a game piece to the pot.
5. If you find that you have no game pieces left, you may be “out” or may ask a fellow player for a “loan.”

11-D [Justin who won the 1998 Australian and French Open in Mixed Doubles partnered with Venus Williams (58-Across of BIG MOTELS)] = GIMELSTOB.
. Obviously I’ll have to scrap the theme if this tennis player isn’t just famous enough to be included (but there’s an anagram clue).

I didn’t realize he became an interviewer/sports commentator on a note in his retirement. Here he gets the Ice Bucket Challenge treatment from Andy Murray:
. Solvers tell me that “hay” is a more common spelling in dreidels that transliterate the letter. But hey, what can you do?
35-D [Illuminate] = SHIELD. Shin. I want SHINTOISM there but it seems like an outdated term, with only “Shinto” being chosen now.
And if you are not sure from the four letters, there is also a rotating T-O-P in the center of the grid, which leads to the second way of DREIDEL.
