David Steinberg notes:

Many missing periods at ends of clues in original; added them. Missing ellipsis in original clue for 97-Across; added it. Replaced period with colon in original clues for 112- and 140-Across; added colons in 9- and 37-Down; left clue for 98-Across as it was rather than change it to "Tsk-tsk!" — seemed to be onomatopoeic spelling of actual clucking noise and was also clearly the clue; changed punctuation of 101-Across; changed 64-Down "Regions Abb" to "Regions: Abbr."; added umlaut over "o" in "Köln"; added period to "Atl" in 70-Down.
