(I thought this was fairly challenging!  No new clue words, but some pretty neat jumbling.  My two favorites were “figure” and “acidic”.  The answer letter layout was one of Hoyt’s best!  A true masterpiece of jumbling artistry!  And, the cartoon set the tone perfectly, without resorting to any gimmicky bonus clues.  You folks who don’t get a Sunday Jumble in your paper really missed out on a great puzzle.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
