(Great groaner of a pun!  No new clue words today, but all of the jumbling looked new, to me.  I can’t say that any of them were particularly tough, but maybe the five-letter words, starting with vowels, tripped up a few of you.  Making the jumbles look like other words does work sometimes, but the jumble of “pursue” still came off as obvious.  The answer letter layout was a much better jumble, although swapping the order of “acute” and “icing” would have made it slightly more challenging.  Top-notch cartoon.  I was always a big Carl Sagan fan.  Although he did live to 62, I always thought he died way too young.  Another one of my favorites who died way too young actually died this day in 1981.  The soulful balladeer and humanitarian, Mr. Harry Chapin was only 38 when he tragically died, in a car accident on the Long Island Expressway.  Maybe these two are hanging out together . . . somewhere in the cosmos!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Wow! Great minds and music lovers, think alike. I’ve been thinking a lot about Harry Chapin this week (not knowing that this was the anniversary of his passing). He is one of my musical idols. I’ve been thinking about him as I get serious about finishing a dozen songs I have in one condition or another, on the way to recording another album and performing more. Way to go, Uncle!

    My pleasure, Jeff! I hadn’t listened to Harry Chapin in quite a while. I saw his death anniversary in yesterday’s paper, and had to look up a couple of songs. I used to have some old LPs, but I gave them all away. Can’t remember if I bought replacement CDs! Maybe I should join this 21st Century and download his songs to some kind of MP3 format! He was always a favorite of mine. I hope all of this Chapin resurgency helps to inspire you to finish those songs! Good luck, bro.
