You can get more with a kind word and a gun than you can get with a kind word.”   — Al Capone

(Said Al, as he was campaigning to become President of the NRA!  Just kidding.  I used to be big on “gun control“.  But now, I’ve grown so distrustful of the federal government, that I’m kind of glad that there’s an organization that fights for the public’s right to bear arms.  I kind of miss my old values, in this regard.  But, in the real world you have to be able to adapt to the unfortunate realities of life.  Happy Birthday to my bouncing baby boy!  Derek turns 24 today!)   — YUR

Visual Description:  Jeff . . . banking on his celebrity?

APUORR  =  UPROAR,  LNMIEG  =  MINGLE,  RYOWTH  =  WORTHY,  AILSDN  =  ISLAND,  ASIRAF  =  SAFARI,  LWUATN  =  WALNUT —   Giving us:  RNGWHIDAIWT

Clue/Question:  How Jeff Knurek kills time while while waiting in line at the bank.

Answer:  WITH DRAWING

(Today, Jeff is his very own “bonus clue”!  Jeff Knurek, of course, is the cartoonist end of the Jumble.  Looks like he’s working on one for next week, or so.  Today’s answer made for a nice banking pun.  You actually have to make it to the window – or an ATM – to execute a withdrawal, but the general connection should have been apparent to all.  It also looks like Jeff is wearing his trusty WILCO shirt.  All around great scrambling today.  Nothing exotic about any of the clue words.  A tip of the hat to Mr. Hoyt.  Nice going, cuz.  Boy, yesterday it seems that a lot of people had trouble getting “iguana”!  I counted over a 140 various queries on that scrambled word.  That’s big. I didn’t watch the NCAA games yesterday, but it looks like the UCONN v. Arizona game and the Butler v. Florida games were great ones.  Tiny Butler making the Final Four for the second year in a row is pretty impressive.  Unless VCU pulls off some kind of miracle today, over #1 Kansas, it’s doubtful that Butler will be able to get to the championship game.  But, one never knows.  I’m still holding out for a Battle of the Ks! Be good, do good, friends.)   — YUR
