Tuesday's puzzle children are full of grace.
Spread out, to varying degrees, as though on the rack, inside longer answers, are found today the names of the four evangelists.
And speaking of entertainers, it's quite a coincidence that "Ed Sullivan," whose variety show ran from 1948-1971, fits into 11-Down, which is clued with "Variety show host of 1951-1971" (REDSKELTON). I thought first of the more famous host, which slowed down that whole NE area. Also slowing it down was the difficult, at least to me, 21A: Didn't buy, say (LEASED). Tricky!
1A: Discharge, as from a volcano (SPEW) - B.
Favorite: 23D: What gives you the right to bare arms? (TANKTOP). So silly.
Least: LACTI (19D: Milk: Prefix). LACTI? What about the more common, "lacto?"
There were some dusty old words today, like ESCARP (would have preferred either more "escarpment" or less "scarp" here), ABAFT, and ENCASES. And there were quite a few names aside from the four circled ones. I didn't find this especially inspirational, but it was a serviceable Tuesday.
