(I liked it!  A lot!  Great clue word jumbling.  Hoyt really outdid himself today.  I loved “eureka”.  I actually had to think a bit on “tenth”, and “impale” has always been a fan favorite.  Also, the answer letter layout was perfect!  Maybe the best I’ve ever seen.  It doesn’t even hint at the answer.  And, you can never say enough about the Jeff Knurek cartoons!  Straight out of The Jetsons today.  Did you guys notice the little “human” skull that the astronauts un-marsed?  Hilarious!  Who knows.  There might even be a little truth to it!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I like Porsches, but they’re more about power and performance.  I’m more into style.  That’s why I like their Boxter model.  Very sleek.  Overall, I’m more of a Jaguar man.  I like the XKRs and the new F-Types, but I really liked the old XKEs.  They looked like bullets flying down the road!  They looked like horizontal rockets!  I remember an old print ad from the mid to late 70s.  It featured a cobalt blue XKE in this lush field of dark green grass.  I was already a big fan, because a big-kid neighbor of mine had one, but that ad really solidified my love affair.  If I ever win the lottery I’ll have to hunt one down.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
