(Some really fun clue words, today.  All of them well-jumbled, naturally.  No “new” clue words, today.  However, we’ve seen the jumble DSAUTJ before and we’ve had “jargon” as GROJAN.  The answer letter layout was beautifully cryptic.  Nothing given away there!  I wonder if Jeff is drawing people he knows again.  He likes to do this, from time to time.  Perhaps it’s someone who doesn’t approve of the answer phrase.  Some folk just don’t dig the vernacular.  Be well and do good.  Hasta la vista, amigos.)   —   YUR

To a philosopher all news, as it is called, is gossip, and they who edit and read it are old women over their tea.”   —   Henry David Thoreau

(It sounds to me like he made this up when confronted with some “news” that everybody – save himself – already knew.  Better to sound pithy, than to appear ignorant!  And, I’m not one to impose current sensibilities on works, and thought processes, from days gone by, but by today’s standards Mr. HDT would probably be labeled a male chauvinist.  Perhaps, even a misogynist.  It’s a good thing you’re dead, Henry!  I know some chicks that would . . .  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
