  Cool looking grid with a couple of "arrows" shooting out from the center, but alas, I was not on the mark today - SE corner had a few unknowns for me, and so I had to resort to red-letter assistance.  This is the fourth LAT Saturday for Mr. Healy, and the first one for me.  Triple stacks of 10's in the corners, even pairs of triple stacked 7's down the sides.  Some that I thought worth mentioning;

15A. Without a firm grip on reality : IN LA-LA LAND - why, I do believe our Linda can be regularly found here ~!!!

14D. Picked up at a cocktail party? : SPEARED - those little hot dogs in a bun/pigs in a blanket, and a toothpick; for those who were curious, I can be picked up at cocktail party, too~!!! (I'm the one not drinking)
