Puzzle by John Lieb / Edited by Will Shortz

Four down answers with the initials ND constitute the interrelated group of this Tuesday crossword:

NAME DROPPING (12D. Status-seeking sort ... or a solver of this puzzle, initially?)
NAPOLEON DYNAMITE (5D. With 41-Down, title teen in a 2004 indie hit)
NANCY DREW (20D. Amateur detective in 1967's "The Clue in the Crossword Cipher")
NEIL DIAMOND (24D. "Song Sung Blue" singer)

This abbreviated post is due to mechanical difficulties.  Hope to be better off tomorrow.
