(Pretty simple American vernacular.  Even though it was a pretty good answer letter layout, it was pretty hard to hide the answer with all those Is and Ls.  No new clue words, but some very good jumbling.  I had to back into “fibula”.  I was too lazy to write out various letter combinations.  “Pundit” was jumbled pretty well, too.  The cartoon shows a good job of baldy losing it.  That’s about it folks.  Be well and do good.  If it’s hot by you . . . stay cool!)   —   YUR
