A library is the delivery room for the birth of ideas, a place where history comes to life.”   —   Norman Cousins

(Wow.  Our second Norman Cousins quote in about a week!  Should make Wes happy.  I have some worries about the future of libraries.  Too many of us – myself included – are relying too heavily on the internet for our information.  As with a newspaper, there’s nothing like the tactile experience of opening a real book!  If Willie Sutton had been a library robber – instead of a bank robber – he might have responded to the question:  Why do you rob banks? with the answer:  Because that’s where the books are.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  THERMMOMMETER

(Nice, long, 13-letter answer!  Probably could have worked with two less Ms, but I guess Hoyt felt they were necessary.  None of the clue words were new, but all but “vormee” were new jumbles.  Great answer letter layout.  Maybe the extra Ms made it a little tougher.  Classic family scene cartoon.  Nice to see the Dean Winters Allstate character used as a clue word.  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
