Rest in Peace, Ralph Kiner!  A super player and a great broadcaster.  You passed along your great knowledge of the game of Baseball, to millions of “kids” like me!  Pirates and Mets fans everywhere are mourning your passing.  You will be missed, and always fondly remembered.   —   YUR

Answer:  LOW RENTS

(OK.  The pun is supposed to come from the fact that Death Valley is the lowest area – elevation-wise – in the United States.  Yeah, I know.  It’s only moderately funny.  They can’t all be winners.  There were no new clue words today, but I liked the jumbling of both “oblige” and “sprain”.  One is hard for some because it starts with a vowel, and the other jumbled version leads you to believe that it might be two syllables.  Excellent job on the answer letter layout!  If you didn’t know about Death Valley, or you didn’t pick up on the sign in the cartoon, then you might have had a little trouble solving this.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Wouldn’t it be great if we all felt this way about our jobs?  I’m sure we all would, if we could.  Today’s cryptoquote was tougher than it should have been.  For me, at least.  I couldn’t get myself to commit to “the” for a long time.  I had to figure out “demands” first.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
