On to this week's The Nation puzzle (the PDF of which was posted late).

Degree of difficulty (by standards of this weekly puzzle): moderate to hard. I got the top right first; it got a lot easier once I sussed out the theme.
Themework: see 26a. As it says, three of the clues don't give you the entire answer. The purists will be upset, but I liked it.
Hozom's comment: "Capital Gains," in which Hot and Trazom talk about the convention of ensuring that a clue that is capitalized leads to an answer that is capitalized and vice versa. They also sneak in a mention of how sometimes they'll make you insert a space into a clue word to work out the answer.
