I pulled out 1D Stumbling syllables: UHS because I had UMS there the whole game. I couldn’t figure out what I’d done wrong. Then I tried the H, and that was that. Now I know that the 13A Native Rwandan: HUTU. Clearly I have much to learn.
If I didn’t write this blog, I wouldn’t have understood the theme.
19A Land___: DISPOSALAREA.
22A ___more and more: PRESIDENTS.
40A I___, for one: NEWSCASTER.
48A Test format … or a hint to understanding three of this puzzle’s clues: FILLINTHEBLANK. Now, I’d filled this in with MULTIPLECHOICE. It was wrong. It never was multiple choice.
So why fill in the blank?
19A LandFILL: DISPOSAL AREA.
22A FILLmore and more: PRESIDENTS. Millard Fillmore. Not on the list of baby names when that time comes.
40A IFILL, for one: NEWSCASTER because Gwen Ifill.
Finished this one in 31:10.
