(WOW!  Five out of the six clue words were new jumbles for me!  No new clue words, but I guess you’d have to say that “pulsar” is the newest, based on comparing my last soft copy of the ralis95 clue word database to the hard copy one he sent me, not too long ago.  I had to back into “pulsar”.  Even with figuring out the answer, I still had difficulty coming up with the word.  Four out of the six clue words begin with a vowel, and that always presents a problem for some of you.  The answer letter layout was great, but I would have swapped “outage” and “impede”.  It’s a nice, long answer, using a phrase that some of the younger readers might not be too familiar with.  The clue/question was a little funny, because the fireplace is the opening portion of a chimney, usually found inside, but I thought it still worked.  The cartoon got the message across.  Be well and do good, friends.  Enjoy the Sochi Olympics!)   —   YUR

(Apparently from a 1979 interview with Frank Rich.  Not sure which particular movie he might have been talking about.  Maybe Annie Hall?  Maybe Manhattan???  Anybody out there know?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
