I like puzzles which go from Zora NEALE Hurston [woman writer] to Trish Stratus [woman wrestler] to Shana Morrison [woman singer], the last two of whom are new to me.

Elected ones   INS [I don’t think I’ve ever seen INS in this sense in the real world.  I’d go with “Outs partner.”]

To the max, in the disco era   AGOGO [I thought it meant relating to dance, which suggests “excitement.”  Perhaps in some slang dictionary it denotes the ultimate.  I'd go with " '70's Club Whiskey ___."]

Plotting aid   GRAPH [Graph depicts the relationship between variables; a grid aids in the plotting which results in the graph]

Three grins = Excellent: Loved it; Two grins = Good: Enjoyed it; One grin = Satisfactory: A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Unsatisfying: No fun
