Thu., 8/29 David Poole

THEME:   Phrases ending in words that sound like types of animals --- and each spelled with double consonants
FOXX; DOGG; WOLFF; BATT; and SWANN  [most clever --- how did it occur to him?]   
Civic, perhaps   COUPE   
It involves checks and balances   BANKING [I thought government]   
Lost a lap   STOOD [oldie but goodie]   
Groovy music collection?   LP'S [love this one: LP's had grooves for the needle, and "groovy" was hip when those records were popular]   
Beginning of time?   TEE   
Half and half   ONE [didn't see it that way at first]   
I've been a Mad Men watcher from its inception, but I didn't know Mr. Batt.  Regardless, I suspect a casting change occurred somewhere along the way.   
SES is French, but it is a widely used academic abbr. for "socio-economic status."  Now I've mentioned this before, but for some tragic flaw on their part, editors and constructors appear not to study The Magnificent Magus ("Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.")   
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
