(Bang up job, guys!  It’s current and relevant.  Clue words are tried and true.  None were too difficult.  The answer letter layout was top-notch.  For those of you with the reduced sized Jumble, that’s an XLVIII on those pennants.  Does anybody have any Super Bowl predictions?  I have very mixed feelings about it.  Good defense and a strong running game very often prevail, so I think you have to give the edge to the Seahawks.  But, you can’t discount the experience and caginess of guys like Peyton Manning and Wes Welker.  Should be a good game either way!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Every little breeze seems to whisper Louise.  Very cute quote from a largely forgotten First Lady of long ago.  Some First Ladies stand out more than others, either because of their personality and activism, or due to the popularity of their husbands.  We all know the Marthas, Abigails, Dollys, Mary Todds, Eleanors, Bess’, Mamies, Jackies, etc., etc.  But, what about Mrs. Fillmore, Mrs. Pierce, Mrs. Polk, Mrs. Taylor, Mrs. Taft and the like?  They always used to say:  Behind every great man there’s a great woman, so how could we let so many great women go so unrecognized?  Someone needs to compile the activities and accomplishments of these largely forgotten great women.  After all, it’s not just a man’s world anymore.  Our next President could very easily be a woman.  President Warren, or maybe President Gillibrand?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
