I pulled out 17A Sympathetic response to dissent: IHEARYOU probably because that’s Sam Ezersky’s refrain every time someone sends a reasonable request to include a word in the Spelling Bee. Like DUDETTE, HORCHATA, ALEE, MOLAL, RAABIDFUN.
Does he ever change? No.
No theme for this Saturday puzzle. Why didn’t Ezersky make a theme?! He should have made a theme.
He’d probably respond: “I hear you.”
Finished this one in 25:05.
