          Thanks Ben! Yeah I wasn鈥檛 too crazy about having one unchecked letter in the grid for the sake of grid art, but I figure if I clue it as anagram of rose, then it is gettable

          Really great puzzle! I love how a lot of the clues included other tidbits of information about the topic.

            Thanks Jeff! I like learning stuff from crosswords and in general so I usually try to inject extra info when I can, however a lot of editors do prefer brevity over long clues - personal preference I guess
