(This one was a little tough to get started.  Eventually, I started under the premise that the ninth word was “usually”.  Not very far off, actually.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I thought this was pretty good!  I had a little trouble getting “symbol”.  With an L and a Y I’m always looking to put that on the end of a word.  I had no problem with “kiosk”, but it is new to the ralis95 clue word database.  The answer letter layout was beautiful!  I was first looking for MOCK something.  Then, instead of RASH I thought MASH, which left me with ROCK.  MASH ROCK didn’t make any sense!  Then it hit me.  Duh!  Nice, contemporary, Saint Patrick’s Day fare.  I wonder if some of our elder statesmen missed out on the U2 reference.  Hmm?!?!  Be well and do good friends.)   —   YUR
