DOMETS  =  MODEST,  HIDARS  =  RADISH,  YLIPMS  =  SIMPLY,  HILANE  =  INHALE,  YOUFLJ  =  JOYFUL,  NISSIT  =  INSIST   —   Giving us:  MTRDSMAEOYINT

Clue/Question:  Calling Pluto a planet will become a . . .

Answer:  DISTANT MEMORY

(Very good!  I liked it, and thought it was fairly challenging!  No new clue words, but I really liked the jumbling of “radish” and “joyful”.  The other words came to me instantly.  The answer letter layout didn’t give me a clue.  I played around with the second word being MATTER, until I realized that the first word was probably supposed to be DISTANT, but I didn’t have all the right letters.  So, I scrapped MATTER, checked off the letters for DISTANT, and saw the letters for MEMORY.  And then, I got the joke!  Duh!  Pluto was the most distant planet in our solar system . . . when it was a planet.  Now, it’s referred to as a dwarf planet.  Poor Pluto.  It’s kinda like finding out you were adopted.  You’re still you, but you’re not who you thought you were.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sigmund Freud

In the Middle Ages they would have burned me; nowadays they are content with burning my books.”   —   Sigmund Freud

(Surprisingly, this is the first quote from Sigmund Freud, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  I’m guessing he wasn’t too popular with the Nazis.  But then again, what intellectual was?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
