This puzzle:

Rows: 15, Columns: 15 Words: 70, Blocks: 34 Missing: {JKQVX} Spans: 2 This is puzzle # 26 for Mr. Ginsberg. NYT links: Across Lite PDF
Jim Horne notes:

From Matt Ginsberg: "Oh, no! Will left out what was — in my opinion! — the most important part of this puzzle. There is supposed to be an asterisk in front of the clue for 36-Across. Think about it ..."

Jeff Chen notes:

I read Matt's note three times before finally e-mailing him to figure out what I was missing. I literally slapped my forehead when I heard back from him: of course "differently" is pronounced "differently", whether or not the D is capitalized. Good one, Matt!
