Fine otherwise -- though it is not a "Thursday" puzzle, more like Tuesday -- but there are incomplete clues here (6D, 41D, 47D, 52D), and you may want to fix those!

Whoa! missing info galore! Must be a problem with the imported text. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

Looks like the program truncates any text after an apostrophe during import. Be careful!
