This is a freshly updated version of a puzzle I constructed almost 10 years ago. It’s pinch-hitting for the puzzle I had planned to post today, which I decided was not ready for prime time.  Enjoy, share, etc.; you know the drill.

41A:  This factoid never ceases to amaze me.  Democritus lived 2500 years ago!

43D:  I realize this is a little obscure, but he’s a wonderful, widely respected player who transcends several genres of jazz.

54A/55D:  In the original version of this puzzle, the intersection of these clues was a “T” and the down clue was “Mitt’s son”.  Way back in 2012, Romney’s son’s name was widely known; after all, his father was running for President.  Today I’m sure no one remembers him (the son, not the father).  Felicitously, the company referenced in the revised entry/clue is now a big deal; in 2012 it was just 3 years old and much smaller.
