Dana Motley's Saturday NYT features interesting long entries and knotty clues. But...I'm not going to mention any of them. Nope. Not giving away any answers tonight. I don't mind spoilers, but I'm seeing some killer times (i.e., like molasses) on the applet, and I'd hate to give anyone a unfair boost. I will say this, though—maybe this puzzle's not jam-packed with long entries, but it also has only four 3-letter entries. There are plenty of 4-letter words but the clues diverge from the usual; even the 3's and 4's offer a challenge. Congrats on a tough puzzle, Dana and Will!
