Drawing on my fine command of language, I said nothing.”   —   Robert Benchley

(I guess I wasn’t feeling it today, because I took the easy way out, by looking at the author’s – first – name!  It took me a long time to come up with Benchley, and I had to write out the spare consonants to come up with drawing!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Nothing lazy about it, Unc Rave – it’s pragmatic! (Also the first thing I spotted.) NDGRNH is a 6-letter first name, 1st and 5th letters the same … most often it will be ROBERT. Nice little twist filling in DRAWING and COMMAND; both have “N” in second-to-last place, but only one of them ends in -ING. I love seeing the author’s film shorts between features on TCM.

    I know, hal. But, I usually try to solve them without having to go to the author’s name. Anything close to the Algonquin Round Table these days?

    There was so little text in this one that I’m not sure how one could solve it without using the name. I decided that the lone letter was I, not A, for reasons I can’t recall, but got absolutely nowhere thereafter until putting in ROBERT.

    If both Art and hal thought it was a tough solve, without using the author’s name, then I guess I shouldn’t be too hard on myself! Thanks, guys!
