NY Times, Sun, Jan 04, 2015 TAKEAWAY CROSSWORD

Author:Matt Ginsberg
Editor:Will Shortz
Rows: 15, Columns: 15, Words: , Blocks: 36, Across Lite
Notepad: One letter of the alphabet has been removed from each clue every time it appears in the clue. If you remove this letter from the clue's answer, the remaining letters will themselves spell a word, which is to be entered in the grid. For example, the clue "Be a sni*ch" would suggest "Be a snitch" with a missing T, leading to the answer TATTLE, which, with the T's removed, would be entered in the grid as ALE. Every answer is a regular word, name or other crossword answer except as indicated.
