(Did you guys know that our guys, Jeff Knurek and David L. Hoyt, were featured in a recent Dick Tracy comic strip?  Yeah!  They didn’t promote it here, but I caught it on Jeff’s Facebook page, after the fact.  Today was a bit of payback.  No new clue words, and the jumbling was only so-so.  I liked the answer letter layout, though.  It made me think.  Initially, I thought the first word was ART, but then I re-read the dialog, and picked up on “grifter”.  Then it was like . . . Duh!  The guy in the middle looks like Tom Ewell, from The Seven Year Itch.  No April Fools, from yer Uncle . . . just some truth.  Subscriber/followers come and go – and sometimes even come back again – but today we grew to 450 . . . and, while I’ve been typing today’s spoilers . . . we grew to 451 followers!  I feel very honored.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
