Answer:  LOVE WAS IN THE AIR

(When I first got all the letters, and tried to solve the puzzle, I was coming up with a big blank.  The answer letter layout was that good!  I didn’t spend a long time on it, but getting up and doing something else, and then coming back to it, made a big difference.  There were no new clue words, but some interesting jumbling.  I thought that “indigo”, “bushel” and “herbal” were fairly challenging.  The clue/question didn’t set up what I would consider an obvious answer.  It was the totality of the cartoon, it’s dialogue, and the clue/question which led me to the answer.  Of course the fact that they didn’t call it a hot “air” balloon and they didn’t mention the word “love” also came into play.  Not as tough as last Sunday’s, but still challenging.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(It’s a good thing that old Henry Wadsworth never lived to see the likes of Jersey Shore and The Real Housewives of – – – , and a slew of other “reality” shows!  And, to think that commercial television was once referred to as a “vast wasteland“, way back in 1961.  I wonder what Mr. Newton N. Minow thinks of today’s television state of affairs?  Well, at least he has scads more options now, than then.  But, then I guess you have to ask yourself if that has actually made things better, or worse.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
