                Thanks /mɑli/s, this was a truly wonderful puzzle! I've been a bit less enthusiastic about US-style crosswords these days (as opposed to cryptics and logic puzzles) but this one reinvigorated me. First of all, the grid is just really beautiful, and lent itself to a very smooth solve. I started in the bottom left, then moved over to the bottom right; I had PEATS for MIRES43ASwampy spots[-----], but once I fixed that I moved up through the center and made some progress in the top left which let me finish the puzzle. I particularly enjoyed the successful misdirects on CHANDLER3DWhat came before Bing in the 90s[--------], LINCOLNMEMORIAL20APlace of honor for a sitting president[---------------], and TRAININGBRA18APurchase made in anticipation of getting A's[-----------] - those clues all had big aha moments when figured them out. The whole puzzle really puts a smile on my face! I have to check out more of Mollie's, because this is the first one I've done (I've already done & enjoyed many of Mali's).
