I really enjoyed the solve within the solve today! I skipped right over the dashed clues at first, because what else was I going to do? I needed to ELICIT a few answers from my brain and read the revealer at 66A. (REDACTED) before I could make any headway. The first one I caught on to was DOLPHI[nsa]FETUNA. Which led me to make the [cia] connection between ASSO and TEDPRESS down at 52A. LOOSELEA[fbi]NDER took me forever, even though I knew the missing letters had to be FBI based on the other two theme answers. I was not helped having confidently dropped in suckedUP in 4D, instead of the more delicate, and, as it turned out, more correct, KISSEDUP. I might have liked suckedUP slightly better, but I'm not going to make a federal case out of it.
In addition to the excellent theme material, there was quite a bit to enjoy in the grid, starting right off with HOOKAH. I didn't get that one immediately thanks to the obscure (to me) clue, and the overly forceful lip action I had erroneously entered, mentioned above. THRICE and SILTY are two other words that I thought UPLIT the grid today.
Two fun clue/answer pairs were 6D. Prom wear, for some (HEELS) and 61D. Back at sea (AFT). I liked the near duplication of the adjoining answers 53 and 54D. (SOLE and SOLD), although I was completely convinced I had the correct answer when I entered the incorrect "sure".
Plenty of Huygens material today including SHAFT, the aforementioned KISSEDUP and AFT, SENSATION, possibly SPRAYER, and, of course, ASSO. ALLINFUN. :)
In addition to the ACMES, there were a few DADAS to CONTEND with - but just a few - the worst of which, for me, was probably STRIAE (Narrow grooves). I really much prefer wide grooves. :) I also got stuck on 30D. (GLUEY). I had the G and the Y but wasn't sure what Mr. Fagliano had chosen to fill that void.
