Answer:  HAIRBRAINED IDEA

(I almost forgot the quotation marks, and was surprised to see that WordPress did not like the spelling!  I found out the correct spelling is harebrained, and it means having no more sense than a hare.  I never really gave the word much thought before, it’s just such a part of idiomatic speech.  We had one new clue word today, in “coarse”.  Hoyt has been on fire lately.  He’s really keeping ralis95 on his toes.  A bunch of the jumblings are new.  The answer letter layout is marvelously cryptic.  No giveaways.  Fantastic cartoon, too.  I don’t know if it’s actually supposed to be Hoyt, or not, but I generally assume it is when Jeff draws a baldy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Too much Getty owned photo content to contend with!  I refuse to deal with “owned” content that contains such a ridiculous legal disclaimer.  Soon, I will not be able to use/post any pictures, and after that I will strongly consider giving up blogging.  It is really not worth it friends.     YUR

    Great puzzler. And starting a puzzler with EASILY is more than a hoot! For me, a Sunday puzzler usually takes sometime to solve. I got through this one in record time today.

    And Bob Costas a toupee???? No! I would have never, ever guessed it!!

    Unc, there you go again….I understand your frustration, however….NOOOO!
