Found this one quite dull and dreary. It’s built like a Saturday puzzle, with four thick, distinct, relatively isolated corners that you have to methodically work through, and you can get stuck very easily if something goes wrong. In short – not great flow. Further, when. You basically decide to make it a four corner puzzle, you won’t get as interesting an answer as an acceptable one. You won’t mind the long fill most of the time, but you won’t be surprised or delighted by it. I don’t understand why the answers to this puzzle were supposed to be seed entries, meaning the fill you find really new and fresh and fun and interesting. You get a bunch of 9s, but since they’re stacked, what you can expect is not “clean”, but “eye-popping”. Stacked long answers are very hard to clear, so unless you seed one of those corners with a real winner and build on it, what you’re most likely to get, best case scenario, is mostly what you’ll get here – the corners hold, and That’s it. You’ll get a “Q” here and an “X” there, but a bunch like ART EDITOR and REDTIDES and IRON RULE and OUTRACED are fine. Nothing wrong with them, just … something memorable, either. The PAPER WASP, free from the limitations that come with long-answer stacking, is easily the most interesting thing on the grid, but even that is only interesting in the sense of being unusual (I didn’t know such a thing existed) (32D: Insect with a delicate nest). It’s a curiosity, a surprising turn of phrase or a familiar expression or a famous name you’ve never seen on the grid or some still-unexpected modern phenomenon. PAPER WASP gets a “huh, cool name” from me … which is good, but it’s the most any answer to this puzzle has gotten from me – at least in terms of positive emotional comments. It felt like a solid, workmanlike, 20th century Saturday puzzle. Very efficient, not a ton of fun.

I really can’t decide which of your most “original” bits is going to be short fill, and today I’m looking specifically at QUBIT (7D: Portmanteau Unit of Computing Information). No idea what that is. Seems like a bit of a smug nod to the tech people. I’m guessing it’s pronounced like “qubit” and is a “portmanteau” of, uh, Q*BERT and OBIT. Oh, dang, it’s actually “quantum” + “bit” – less interesting. However, let’s just say that this answer made an appearance for this decade. See you in the 30s, QUBIT! Another thing I don’t understand is your attempt to disguise your weak fill ( BITON ) as a “designer dog” (the very phrase makes me uncomfortable) (50D: dog that is a cross of two French-named breeds). It would be one thing if the names of the two species involved in the name (portmanteau! Again!) were well known, but I was sitting there, “Well, it’s a Bichon Frize and … and … huh … I got nothing. .. Oh, shit, drab right? Is that drum/mitton!?!? A maltese and a … python? What the hell?” If you’re familiar with the dog breed Coton de Tulear (the -TON part of this dog-engineering experiment), congratulations. I just had to trust DRUB (49A: Soundly Defeat) and pray that BITON… something. Not a great position to put a solver.

The theme works a little, but not much. Something. It’s more than one percent effective, but there are some real problems with some of the answers The definite article ULTRA-RICH sounds really weird without the “the” similar to “one percent,” which is the phrase that really needs “the.” That’s *one percent*. If you say only one percent without “the,” you’re not referring to the super-rich at all. “The,” or lack thereof in the revealer, creates a vexing non-correspondence problem with that answer. But even worse are the odds, for one simple reason: One percent are not “Avids.” Seven-to-one, three-to-one, they’re odd. A percentage is a percentage. Yes, both things measure probability, but the *competition* is 99-to-1, not one percent. Lowfat milk and dyeing batteries seem fine.
As I was going through the top half I had no idea what the theme was, and when not knowing got tiresome, I decided to do something I don’t usually do, which was to just cut to the chase and get down to the publisher. Go and work back from there. Thus I ended up with this weird-looking split solution at first:

Launching the revealer was easy, and once you got the hang of it, the themes became easy. As for the fill, it’s noticeably rougher, with whole sections I had to wade through (most notably the THURONANUFF section and the IDYLENRYTTYL section). I don’t understand how a grid can flash a new word like ZADDY but not have the presence of mind to clean up the old gun that dominates the rest of the grid. RAF AMAS ALOE ORA WONAT EBSEN AMESS and on and on; A few of these things are always acceptable, one of them being Vela Rankel. A ZADDY doesn’t fix things.
Apart from Tony there was no motivational speaking Robbins, so oddly enough MEL was probably the hardest thing on the grid for me. KANYE’s name is now just Ye, legally, and the clue probably should have reflected that, even though he was really KANYE when he made “Yeezus.” But still, you probably should have put “Known” in the clue, since he’s technically a rapper. was not He has recorded as KANYE West. I would never put AGAVE and didgeridoos together, so that formula was interesting. I put these things on completely different continents, but either Central America has Australian instrument enthusiasts or Australia has AGAVE … or both? No, it looks like AGAVE only belongs in America, so I don’t know who figured out the didgeridoo thing. I know AGAVE only as a plant distilled to make tequila (and mezcal). I hope you know NYC deli (10A: famous N.Y.C. deli => alias of KATZ) because I can easily imagine you don’t know ZADDY, and I can easily imagine you (like me) forgot that “carrot” has a “c”. ” has ” and which is “k” (10D: gold standard = KARATS). Here’s everything you wanted to know about ZADDY (13D: attractive, fashionable man, in modern parlance). See you tomorrow. Today’s constructor is our long line of Ph.D. Another – Matt Sewell.

Hello Gary, Thanks for inviting me to post some comments on this puzzle. My main memory of its construction is torturing myself on the SE; Looking through my files, I see six different versions of that section (and they seemed worth saving just for consideration), each with its own balance of pros and cons. In a perverse way, that sifting process — going through many alternatives to find one that’s only marginally better than
