Another lovely themeless today. Ten ten-letter answers lead the way, stacked in twos and threes, all strong. Let's just list them, shall we? In no particular order:
SILKBOXERS, ONEFINEDAY, PETCARRIER, THECITADEL, VOLLEYBALL (Setter's activity) (not the dog), HUMANERROR (What robots might be used to reduce) (had "human labor" at first), ACTIONVERB (Spring or fall, e.g.) (lovely), ECOLOGICAL, ROSEPARADE, STAGENAMES (Elton John and Lady Gaga, for two).
That's a lot of good material.
And so now I've used up almost all the good words with my TRES SNOOTY diatribe. Maybe I should mention how weird the spelling of PHARAOH is, or how I thought the "say" at the end of the ANTELOPE (Quick buck, say) clue didn't feel quite right.
Oh, it's ok, me HEARTIES, I just have one more review to write tomorrow, and then you get to enjoy Frannie's work for the remainder of next week. I'll just put in one more plug for the Boswords Themeless League (deadline to sign up is tomorrow!), and sign off.
