Sometimes things aren’t clear right away.  That’s where you need to be patient and persevere and see where things lead.”   —   Mary Pierce

(I thought this was going to be a quote from a 19th Century writer, or something.  But it turns out it’s from the women’s tennis player, now retired.  I remember her now.  Great player, and easy on the eyes.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  CAMPPAIN

(A nice groaner to close out the work week!  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  The only one that I can see as already being used was “nopver”.  “Omega” gave me a little trouble, but the others came to me right away.  The answer letter layout was nicely jumbled.  If it weren’t for the quotation marks this might have been a tougher solve.  Nice cartoon.  Pretty generic looking politician.  How many Republicans are still in the Presidential race?  16?  More?  Yeesh.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I just got the results, from my doctor, on the MRI of my left knee.  I have a torn lateral meniscus . . . and he said it’s – somehow – flipped with something!  So, even though I’m walking pretty well, with a knee brace, I should be up and running again after the surgery!  Can’t hardly wait!   —   YUR
