BD Rating - Difficulty *** - Enjoyment ****
Hello, everyone. Today's back-pager continues the recent Tuesday trend of delivering enjoyable puzzles combining smooth surfaces, helpful definitions, and some devious wordplay. I'm not sure how to assign a difficulty rating to a puzzle like this – perhaps 2* if you stop the clock when the grid is filled, and 3* if you're not satisfied until every clue is parsed.
