I'm not sure I understand the fascination with the letter K, but Monday's puzzle was full of them as is today's.  Other than the 8 K's, I didn't find much to enjoy in this effort.  I liked crossing KARZAI with KIMJONGIL, sort of, but these characters intruded disconcertedly on my escapist hobby.

I think "Impressive way to walk?" for ONWATER probably should have been "Impressive place to walk."

I wonder how many solvers first had CHECKER for JOEYDEE as a peppermint twister.  Joey Dee and the Starlighters starred at the Peppermint Lounge in the '60's.  Don't know how I remembered that.

Crossing HOECAKE with PAPAWS was tough for me, not having heard of either term.
