(Even though he might be America’s most beloved humorist, I bet there are plenty of English teachers out there cringing as they read this!  But, he was a real American.  More American than most of us, at least.  He was 1/4 Cherokee.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(That Hélio guy.  He won Dancing With The Stars a few seasons ago.  Right?  I used to watch auto racing, during my teen years.  I guess speed used to mean more to me then, than it does now.  I understand that there’s a lot more to it than that.  But, nowadays, I’d rather watch team sports, or the ponies.

There were some interesting clue words, today.  “Stodgy” is always fun.  Very soon it’s going to apply to me.  I really liked the jumbling of “throat” and “menace”.  And, it looks like ralis95 will be adding “deduct” to his clue word database.  The answer letter layout was good and jumbled!  Nothing obvious in today’s answer letters.  You really had to pick up on the verbal clues in the cartoon to get today’s answer.  I’m wondering now if this is running a week late.  The Indy 500 was last weekend.  You boys got anything planned for the Belmont Stakes?  U know yer Uncle is going to be looking at Unstoppable U.  Don’t you?  It’s the year of the U!  Just humor me, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
