This puzzle:

Rows: 15, Columns: 15, Words: 72, Blocks: 38 Missing: {JKPQX} This is the debut puzzle for Mr. Schmiedeler. NYT links: Across Lite PDF

JimH notes: This Three Musketeers theme "all for one, one for all" tripped up many solvers. It means that each occurrence of ONE is replaced with ALL and vice versa. Apparently the Kansas City Star staff was so confused they published an apology for some of the clues being "switched."
