Rows: 15, Columns: 15 Words: 74, Blocks: 36 Missing: {FQX} This is puzzle # 3 for Ms. Delorme. NYT links: Across Lite PDF
Jim Horne notes:

Official NYT correction: The crossword puzzle on Tuesday provided an erroneous clue for 51-Across, seeking the answer "Grasshopper." The clue should have read, "Term of endearment used by Master Po for young Kwai Chang Caine in TV's 'Kung Fu' " — not "Term of endearment for the Karate Kid."
