Answer:  SET-BACK

(And, tomorrow we’re going to have another tennis Jumble where the answer is COME-BACK!  It could happen, folks.  Nah!  The guys don’t like playing into a theme like that.  If, by chance, I did just spoil tomorrow’s Jumble then I apologize in advance, to Mssrs  Hoyt and Knurek.  No new clue words today, but some nice jumbling.  I hesitated a little bit on “rocket”.  How about you, ralis95??? 😉 Fine job on the answer letter layout.  I had to think a minute on the answer.  It didn’t come to me instantaneously, like they usually do.  You always have to look for what they deliberately – because they have to – leave out.  In today’s case, it was the word SET.  Great cartoon.  I don’t think Jeff plays much tennis though.  The coach has John McEnroe hair, and the girl is playing with an old style racket.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(The “right” meaning the North/Free states, I assume.  Do you think he said this prior to the Civil War?  Hmm!  Voting is still important.  The system might be corrupted, but do we really want to resort to bullets!?!?  Get off your butts, and go out and vote!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
