Clue/Question:  His new patented broom was such a success that it was this.

Answer:  SWEEPING THE NATION

(I hope that Richard didn’t pull all of his hair out over this pun!  Maybe we’re going to be seeing Jeff soon on QVC or HSN?  I thought this was fun.  I hesitated a little with “patchy”.  Certain sketchy  adjectives  leave me a little trigger-tame.  The scrambling on “monkey” even had me going.  I didn’t spend a lot of time on it, but I had to drive my son to work, so that spared me from thinking too hard on it.  It hit me as I was driving home.  Also, I was a little surprised to see David sneak in “infuse” so soon since we last saw it.  I believe he changed the scrambling, so that makes it OK in my book.  The answer letter layout gave nothing away, so I hope that some of you guys had to struggle a little, in getting the answer.  Be well, friends.)   —   YUR
