Haven't looked at the puzzle yet, but wanted to share this great poem by Julian Rosenblum - An ODE to Crosswordese

Got it. A little tougher than last week but not much. My birthplace is 39D!
Good luck, fellow Muggles!

Nice breezy puzzle. Much appreciated. Fireball and PGWCC are torturing me.

Had a momentary worry, seeing 16A and 29A that this was going to be that subject I know almost nothing about. But all is well. I’m joining the shore party 🥂
