Puzzle #17: The Last Shall Be First

You might suspect that a certain theme entry from this week's puzzle (pdf, puz, pdf solution) was inspired by the same Twitter conversation that inspired Chris King's latest crossword, but in fact it's a total coincidence. All credit for the inspiration for this theme goes to this Brendan Emmett Quigley crossword. Enjoy!

Puzzle #13: File a Complaint

I like to think I don't shy away from taking a stand on hot-button issues on this here blog. But the theme of today's crossword (pdf, puz, pdf solution) is so controversial, so divisive that I feel I must remain neutral. That means that wherever you happen to stand on this particular issue, you'll probably be infuriated by exactly half of the theme entries - but hopefully you enjoy it anyway.
