Caesar salad at Nichols Restaurant in Marina del Rey, California. :Comment: “A far cry from the original ;]]” — ONE of many variations. See e.g. Doral Chenoweth on this. As an eye-catcher in Caesar salad, it should be replaced by something like this, as soon as available. — any IP 12:43, 30 July 2007 (UTC) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

(Wow!  A thirteen letter stinker of a pun.  Ya gotta love it.  I loves me a nice Caesar Salad!  With slices of chicken it’s a complete meal for me.  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumblings seemed new to me.  I was able to get them all immediately though.  The answer letter layout made for another great jumble.  I might have switched “rhyme” for “sense” though, to make it a little more challenging.  Standard restaurant scene cartoon.  I can’t stand it when someone tries to mooch food from me.  It’s so annoying.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Our first Ed “How’m I doin’?” Koch quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  He was a very gregarious, and colorful, Mayor of New York City, way back in the 1980s!  Back when I lived in Manhattan, and then Brooklyn, while I was young and single.  I don’t think Ed ever met a camera that he didn’t like.  Today’s quote is a great commencement speech line.  Ed said it, but, as with any politician, some speech writer could have come up with it.  Regardless, it’s a great metaphor.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
