(Not sure if Jeff was going for a specific billionaire, or just your generic billionaire.  Looks to be on the young side.  Maybe it’s Sergey Brin!  Regardless, today’s answer was pretty darn easy.  Sure, there’s some double meaning going on, but I don’t imagine too many of you actually had to come here for guidance.  The clue words were all jumbled nicely.  We have another new clue word to add to the ralis95 database, in “avian”.  The answer letter layout was fine.  Looks like the guys are done with the Olympic themed puzzles!  Too bad.  They were fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

One of the best ways to persuade others is with your ears — by listening.”   —   Dean Rusk

(Just letting the other party vent a little can go a long way in getting them to see your point of view.  Hearing exactly what they have to say allows you to more accurately address their concerns.  Trying to do all the talking, or worse yet interrupting, just comes off as arrogant and rude.  Not a great way to influence people!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
