Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.”   —   Rudyard Kipling

 

(A great reason for having a broad and diverse vocabulary!  But nowadays, unfortunately, fewer and fewer people seem to appreciate, or even concern themselves, with a strong vocabulary.  The current obsession with Math and Science is having a devastating effect on linguistics, the arts and many of the social sciences.  We can’t afford to throw out the baby with the bathwater.  We need to regain/maintain a balance with all the branches of education.  One dimensional specialists can be virtually useless, outside of their insular elements.  Every society needs more well-rounded citizens.  Peace.)   —   YUR

ORKCO  =  CROOK,  NLDBE  =  BLEND,  GSOYMG  =  SMOGGY,  MIAGGN  =  GAMING   —   Giving us:  COOBNDMOMN

Clue/Question:  Even though they weren’t related, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig had one.

Answer:  A COMMON BOND

(Very clever.  Both Bonds, with their vodka martinis . . . shaken, not stirred, of course.  A few bad guys in the background.  It looks like Blofeld – the original, Donald Pleasence version – and the ever popular Oddjob!  Nifty cartoon, Jeff!  All the clue words came to me fairly quickly, but they were all well jumbled.  Not a lot could be done with the answer letter layout.  Not with all those Os, Ms and Ns.  So, I doubt many had a lot of difficulty getting today’s answer.  But, it was fun!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
