My experience was very similar to Ian's. When I saw DELAWARE would fit I guessed the them and started to romp home, but hit a problem in the SE corner because I also had RETAIL and thought 35a must be IOWA. Like some others I initially thought SHOW ME was an instruction to write MAINE, but that wouldn't really be a thematic instruction, so I studied the nicknames again.
One benefit of my error was the puzzle wasn't a walkover after all, though still pretty easy, and very enjoyable. Replies: There have been no replies.
