A certain laureate once told me, to thine own self be true. And what is true about this puzzle, is that I did it mostly mine own self. Horace was busy cooking up a storm, so I dedicated myself to unlocking the secrets of the grid. If being part of a team means solving most of a Sunday Times puzzle alone, then SOBEIT (52A). I had very little trouble or ALARMS (102A). If I had to give this puzzle a LETTERGRADE (24A), it would be B+. I will take a moment to mention a favorite clue or two: Senate cover-up TOGA (31D); Helps in a bad way ABETS (46D); [blank] passage NASAL (8D); and EXGI for Nov. 11 honoree (79D). I did not expect that. And, it's always nice to see ASIMOV (90D), "Nemesis novelist" mentioned. In addition to the smooth flow and very natural language of most of this puzzle, it offered some sage advice: Potential Consequences of a plan or decision one cannot reverse should be heeded prior to the time an action is effectuated. True dat.
