(A good pun!  Not too stinky.  Based on the ever popular idiom.  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  Only “palah” has definitely been used before.  Nice long answer letter layout.  Fairly cryptic.  Great cartoon.  Lots of detail.  And, I like the setting sun on the horizon.  The English language is loaded with silly, semi-logical, but quirky idioms.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
