(The guy does kind of resemble that Richard Hatch character.  Another friend of Jeff Knurek’s???  LOL!  Not nearly as easy as yesterday’s, but not a real head-scratcher either.  I thought all the clue words were well-jumbled, especially the five letter ones.  Who knew that “kazoo” was new to the Jumble clue milieu?  Did the crew eschew putting “kazoo” in the clue queue?  Was it too taboo, or under review?  A simple miscue?  Is not this issue part of Hoyt’s purview?  Who could argue that “kazoo” is long overdue?  In lieu of this ballyhoo I’d like to imbue a slew of true value . . . but I just flew in from Kalamazoo, and it’s time for a brew.  Ooh, ooh, ooh!  How ’bout you?  Nice answer letter layout.  Be well and do goo . . . d, friends.)   —   YUR
