(From the answer letter layout, I’d think that this might have been a tougher solve.  But, the cartoon’s dialogue, and the clue/question, made it an easy solve, for me.  How ’bout you guys?  There were no new clue words, but the jumbling was nifty.  All the jumblings were new, to me.  I really liked the jumbling of “spiral” and “medium”.  I almost went for DUMMIE, but that only works with an S as the plural of DUMMY.  I caught myself before committing to it.  Gotta love a girl who’s a fan of CBGB’s!  If you have the reduced Jumble it’s what is on her T-shirt.  Ahh, those were the days!  Hey! Ho! Let’s Go!  1 – 2 – 3 – 4!  Rock and ROLL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

To me, women have always been matters of riddle and admiration.”   —   Washington Irving
