Clue/Question:  An important way to compensate our veterans is to . . .

Answer:  PAY RESPECT

(Very appropriate, guys.  The actual day was yesterday, but it is a Monday holiday for many.  A new clue word today, in “ratio”.  I finally downloaded the ralis95 10/02 updated file!  The other words were jumbled well.  I loved the answer letter layout!  Fantastic.  Great cartoon.  Almost Norman Rockwell-esque!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS. This was our first year where there wasn’t a living veteran from World War I.  Kind of sad, but time marches on.  Peace.      YUR
