Did anyone else get "Toledo" as "Glass City" right away because of the (now-defunct) Glassmen Drum & Bugle Corps?

Ugh, I came to "compound" immediately but got stuck looking for something else because I didn't make the connection with a building compound, even though it's not like I had never heard of that before or anything.

Y-O-D-A, Yoda, Yo-Yo-Yo, Yo Yo-da...

Coryat: $37,400

J: 26R2P2W. Got DD. 5/5 on States, Trophy, "Holy" This, and 80's. 4/5 in Italian (I guessed "nine" instead of "ninety"). 2/5 in Cooking ("chives," not "chicory")

DJ: 21R9P. Ugh. Got both DDs. 5/5 on Beard Men. 4/5 on Chemistry and Films. 3/5 on Generation "Y" and Alcatraz. 2/5 on World Through Literature.

FJ: Instaget.

LT: Decameron, Ammonia (farm boys REPRESENT!)

I really need to sort out Manuel Noriega and Daniel Ortega. Unfortunately, Ortega was a nu-crossword/Games Magazine fave back in the day, so his name always comes to mind first.
I was this close to saying Anastasio Somoza before I paid more attention to the date.

I know who Banksy is though.
As in "I have heard of the artist known as Banksy" or "I know the legal identity of the artist known popularly as Banksy"?

The former, in that case.
