THEME:   none, but eight 10-letter entries, including two that run the gamut!
   
GOOD ONES:    
Word for a loser?   LITE [dieters are losers, in a way --- and winners]   
Indictment feature?   SILENT C   
One of an orange trio   TENNESSEE AVENUE [in Monopoly --- of course I thought fruit]   
Gore and more   ALS [as in the ex-veep who may be foolish and egotistical enough to run again --- which may be gory]   
Turner in cooking   SPIT [I thought some chef on one of the metastizising (or "rising" if you're a fan) cooking shows]   
   
   
BTW:   
Their nos. may appear on shields   RTES [a sign in the shape of a shield is not a shield, it's a sign]   
   
Relish   LUST [relish = enjoy; lust = crave --- needs a tin ear to sense they are the same or even close]   
   
Blend   FIT IN [one of my favorite movie lines is Mona Lisa Vito's insulting Cousin Vinnie: "Oh, you blend"; which summarizes the plot in that Vinnie did anything but fit into the deep South, despite his metal-tipped cowboy boots.]   
   
It occurred to me that the most famous Carmen aria is much like "La Dona Mobile," just as famous and just as cynical.   
   
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
