(I liked today’s!  The first three clue words came to me immediately, but I struggled some with “cougar”.  Enough so, that I thought I could easily back into it by going straight to the answer.  But lo and behold, I didn’t find the answer as obvious as I usually do.  I had to go back and figure “cougar” out on my own.  I didn’t need to write out various letter combinations, like I sometimes do.  It did just come to me, like the other three did.  Even with all the answer letters, I had to think a bit on the answer.  I knew it was CON-something.  It took a minute or two for the CENSUS to sink in.  And, to think that I worked on the Census in 2010!  Funny how it go, sometimes.  Huh?!?!

Decent answer letter layout, and a great Shawshank cartoon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
