puzzle #21: themeless sixteen

puzzle 21: themeless sixteen - oh brother
PDF PUZ Solution

Inspired by the grid from the New Yorker earlier this week, this puzzle was a fun exercise in using up some 7-letter entries I've been sitting on (1-Across and 65-Across in particular). I hope this puzzle inspires more constructors to add NDP to their wordlist, though maybe that's the Canadian in me talking.


[update: ahhh there's a dupe at 23-Down and at the moment I'm only capable of fixing it on the applet, will update again soon]
