A ria ( /r iː ə / or /r i ə / )  is a coastal inlet formed by the partial submergence of an undulating river valley. It is a submerged river valley open to the sea. Generally, rheas have a dendritic, tree-like outline although they may be straight and without significant branching. This pattern is inherited from the dendritic drainage pattern of a flooded river valley. A highly irregular and dented coastline is formed as a result of the subsidence of river valleys along a part of the coast and the formation of rias. Often, there are islands, which are the tops of partially submerged, pre-existing mountain peaks.
It was a really fun one! Mostly because I loved the theme. I don’t know if it was just me, but it actually took me a while to collect most of them, and it was really satisfying when I figured out what each series meant. Except for the “chemical symbols”, because I’m still confused – are those just letters that stand for an individual element? Eh Also I had clued HIJKLMNOPQ for 18A for quite an embarrassing amount of time – I thought it was one of those things that completed the pattern! Hmm, that would be a great concept for a puzzle…
The fill was great too, but has anyone seen that FROST/NIXON? It’s one of those things that I feel like I’ve heard about somewhere and probably know but didn’t. Between LOFTS and BALES, I guess Trenton had hay on his brain. Maybe he was on a farm, or really likes Monet paintings? And I loved seeing the LOUNGE and RECLINE leaning vertically across the grid, that was a neat detail.
None of the clues really panned out, but it more than made up for it being a well-rounded Monday! Clues for three-letter words felt lazier than usual, but ALAS, TIS hard to clue them better, I guess. An exception: Why did I definitely have first for AHA, then WHA? Kind of ironic that that clue turned out to be a particularly “hard crossword clue”. 😛 The letter V, the Roman numeral for “five”, is the second letter in each of today’s themed answers:

“Spam,” the term used for unsolicited email, is derived from a “Monty Python” sketch. The dialogue in the sketch (that I’ve seen) is taken from the word spam, a play on the glut of canned meat in Britain’s markets after WWII. So “spam” is used to refer to the flood of emails that take over online communication. I can just imagine nerdy internet types (like me) adopting something from a “Monty Python” sketch to describe an online phenomenon…
In my youth I remember being taught a great card game by a German acquaintance of mine, a game called Mau Mau. Years later I discovered that UNO!

Idi Amin received most of his military training in the British Armed Forces, eventually attaining the highest rank for a black African in the British colonial army in 1959, that of Warrant Officer. On his return to Uganda, Amin joined his country’s army and soon rose to the rank of deputy army commander. He was quite an athlete during that time. He was a noted rugby player and swimmer, and held Uganda’s national light-heavyweight boxing title for nine years. By the early seventies, Amin was commander of all of Uganda’s armed forces and seized power in a military coup in 1971, ousting the country’s president, Milton Obote. Seven years of brutal rule by Amin followed during which it is estimated that between 100,000 and 500,000 people were killed. Amin was ousted from power in 1979 after a war with Tanzania, and fled to Libya where he lived for a year. He then moved to Saudi Arabia, where he was financially supported by the Saudi royal family for the rest of his life. Amin died in 2003.
