Answer:  LONG LIFE SPAN

(Most older major bridges were built with the intention of lasting – with an expected amount of maintenance – virtually forever.  The ones built in the 1950s and 1960s all seem to have a 50 year life expectancy!  Very strange.  Was it because of some morose Cold War mentality?  It’s mind boggling to me.

There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles were new.  We’ve definitely seen the one of “fervor” before.  The answer letter layout was a wonderful jumble as well.  It was nicely cryptic.  Interesting cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    The Golden Gate Bridge’s wire was made at the Donora Steel and Wire Works (later owned by U.S. Steel, closed and torn down in 1968-9) in Donora, PA–and the historians of that town would say that’s why it has lasted so long!

    Aah! A little east of Washington, PA! That is a fun fact, Donnis. Thanks for sharing that. I went to college in southwest PA . . . way back when. Pretty close to the WVa border. — YUR
