(At least that’s what fits.  And, it kind of makes sense.  I guess.  Not much of a pun, really.  Maybe the editors changed something?  Hmm.  I’m a little perplexed.  Oh, well.  There were no new clue words today.  I did like the jumbling though.  Especially on “yield” and “unlock”.  The answer letter layout was just okay.  I would have switched “yield” and “bogus”, and maybe even “unlock” and “pledge”.  I think BUSYLEOC could have been a little more challenging.  The cartoon was fine, I guess.  I just have the feeling that something might have been changed.  I guess the words “convenient” and “purchase” were supposed to  convey the gag, but it kind of fell flat for me.  And, no.  I’m actually in a pretty good mood . . . in case you’re wondering.  Be well and do good, friends.)    – – –   YUR
