Today's crossword was a colorful one, well, red, at least, thanks to the theme -- 4 multi-word answers, the first word of which could be preceded by LITTLERED, as in 17A, Educated, but not streetwise, BOOKSMART, as in LITTLEREDBOOK (as in Mao's bestseller).
Mike had a spot of difficulty, uncertain of and therefore focused on 11D, Judicial capital of Bolivia, SUCRE, whereas his real error was 62D, Cheese coating, WAX (not WAC, which would be simply, well, whack).
Jean breezed through today's crossword, abetted by her crossword solving partner (not Mike, who is not so much an abetter as an aworser ;-)
In other news, Jean overcomes the challenge of doing Triplet Tuesday while on the road, in spite of Mike's sly misreading of the heteronyms NUMBER and NUMBER. To hear all this goodness, download and listen up!
