No theme to the Monday puzzle...but several good long answers and some fresh fill. That makes the fairly standard three- and four-letter words more than okay in my book.
20A: Profanity, e.g. (strong language).
36A: 1995 Woody Allen comedy (Mighty Aphrodite). I wonder where I was in 1995...that doesn't sound familiar at all, and I needed crosses to get it. My all-time favorite Woody Allen movie is/always will be Annie Hall.
49A: Classic "Jeopardy!" category (Potent Potables). I haven't seen Jeopardy in thirty years. That's not a category I remember...but then, thirty years is a long time.
4D: Monument carved from a single stone (monolith). We have several right here in the Colorado National Monument. I have a friend who's climbed this several times. For a more spectacular view of it, click here.
8D: Nighttime advertising sign, maybe (neon light).
11D: Easily read type (large print). I could use that in phone books nowadays. I carry a small (5 x 7) phone book in my car, and that thing is damn near impossible to read...don't know why I bother to carry it.
27D: Golfer named A.P. Male Athlete of the Year four times (Tiger Woods). Who else could that have been?
33D: Cloudburt (rainstorm).
38D: Off-road two-wheeler (dirt bike)...not my idea of fun.
Favorite clues include 25A: Sit behind bars (do time), 40A: Bank robber's job (heist), 2D: Pinball foul (tilt), 6D: Snowman's eyes (coals)...I've never heard the plural used, but it's so appropriate for this time of year that I decided I like it, 22D: Dead duck (goner) and 30D: Pure-and-simple (utter).
Things I didn't know or remember but got from crosses: 18A: Othello's false friend (Iago), 23A: 2007 film "__ and the Real Girl" (Lars), 55A: Earthenware jar (olla), 56A: College in New Rochelle, N.Y. (Iona), 9D: __ de Lion, epithet for Richard I (Coeur)...Heart of Lion, literally, 25D: Brit's service discharge (demob)...from demobilization, maybe?...and 52D: Hydroxyl-carbon compound (enol).
It's always good to see Z in the grid, crossing at 54D: Peri Gilpin's "Frasier" role (Roz) and 60A: Saltine brand (Zesta).
It's been a busy weekend and I'm beat, so it's time to call it a night. Here's the grid...
...and I'll see you tomorrow.
