(I wish Mario’s son, Andrew, paid more attention to the example that his father set!  The biggest thing he’s got going for him is that his current opponent is more objectionable than he is.  Under his governorship he has allowed hydro-fracking in New York, and is doing little to slow its expansion, despite it being politically unpopular.  He’s allowed the transport of Bakken crude oil on New York’s railways, which is another environmental disaster waiting to happen.  He also has not come out against a proposed  Bakken crude oil pipeline.  See above.  He has not come out against a proposed desalinization plant on the Hudson River, directly across from a nuclear power plant.  He has not come out against a chicken processing plant in a residential area.  He was a big proponent of casino gambling in New York!  He was slow on the medical marijuana issue, although he did finally come through on that.  He’s doing, or not doing, everything to be viewed as a moderate, in hopes of some day running for president.  He has not impressed me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  (I told you, I’m no genius!)

The answer is:  REPEAT BUSINESS, as per:  Liz M, HH, jenn, helper, and someone who came up as anonymous . . . and Joe!  Nice going, people!  I think I have a semantic thing with the word “repeat” when it comes to television.  I use it more in the context of a show’s current season, late spring and summer run.  But, for old shows that are in syndication, I just think of the word rerun, or in syndication.  But, that’s probably just me.  I didn’t even have a chance to try the ralis95 method.  Thanks for all the help!   —   YUR

(I’m going to continue to work on this, but I think it’s fair to inform you that I am – at least temporarily – stumped on this one.  I got all of the clue words immediately, but I’m drawing a blank on the answer.  I’m going to attribute a good portion of this to Hoyt’s superior answer letter layout, because I’m looking at it and coming up with nothing.  I thought the first word might be SERIES, SUPERB, or PARENT, but I can’t do anything with the leftovers.  Maybe, I’ll take a shot using the ralis95 method of breaking down the answer letters, and get back to you.  Until then, if anyone wants to submit the answer, feel free!  Until we meet again, be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
