There should be no New York Sun puzzle because of the holiday (drat!), but the other newspapers don't take a day off. In his NYT puzzle, Mike Nothnagel links the theme entries together with lively 10-letter fill entries, which is a nice touch, especially on a Monday—he spruces up the elitist theme with FEATHER BOA, DIRTY TRICK, and BEER KEGS.
