Hello! This crossword is brought to you by 25-, 38-, 41-, 46-, 50-, 52-, and 59-Down. (Seriously though, no idea why so many brand names came up in this fill.)
This one has a contest-ish element (I say “-ish” because there are no prizes…for this one, anyway). Feel free to e-mail the answer to the following question to [email protected] for bragging rights and/or practice in typing my e-mail address for possible future contests. Deadline is noon, one week from today.
Question: The ten words that comprise the answers to the starred clues can all be found near the edges. What word can be found directly in the center?
