Sun., 4/14 Amy Johnson

(1/1)

magus:
THEME:   intrusive EL… [ Today's title "Subway Series" is clever, but oddly an el is an "elevated" track and a subway is below ground]
   
GOOD ONES:    
"I say, lovely places to worship"?   JOLLYGOODCHAPELS   
Ones who control the markets?   GROCERYCARTELS      
What to grab for an early morning flight?   BAGELSANDBAGGAGE   
Tiger's front and back?   NINES [a thought animal not golfer]   
Lady's business?   AVON [true both ways: an Avon Lady sells to a lady --- mostly]   
Makeup artist?   LIAR [not the Avon Lady]   
Frequent child companion?   MADONNA ["Madonna and Child"]   
Maximum trio?   EMS [I'm always late on the uptake when the clue refers to letters of the word]   
World carrier   ATLAS [I thought airline {a number of mythologic references today}]
   
BTW:   
Half a historic bomber   ENOLA [I'd have gone with "Gay bomber?"]   
Squirrel away   AMASS [amass does not suggest hiding]   
OTRA is not used in English.
I enjoyed the wide variety of topics: the world in a 21x21 grid.   
   
RATING:    ;D ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
