Answer:  CONGESTION

( . . . how I hate to be late, it hurts my motor to go so slow.  Damn this traffic jam, time I get home my supper’ll be cold, damn this traffic jam.”  Love that song!  James Taylor, babies.  No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “unevea” before.  The answer letter layout was another super jumble.  Very cryptic.  And, the cartoon was a lot of fun.  But, isn’t traffic always bad on Mondays?  Be well and do good, friends.  No road rage!)   —   YUR

    Great clue! The final answer took me a fair bit of time today (I estimate around 45 seconds). YUR, did you try the website where you can solve the Jumble online and time yourself? – Vijay.

    I had already seen the website in the past, Vijay. Since I get the newspaper, and I don’t keep my computer on 24/7, I can’t be bothered with the online version. I leave that up to the generation that are killing the newspaper business! — YUR

    You are right, YUR. Reading a newspaper in its print version is a pleasure that I sure do miss!

    Well, I got the cartoon solution before I got all the regular words. That’s because I’m getting over a cold myself and have been pretty congested the past couple of weeks….. 😀

    What an irony! I have had a cold that just hasn’t gone away even after weeks, and yet I couldn’t think of congestion for a long while …

    Two guys, with colds . . . in the winter months! Fancy that! LOL! I’m just being a wise guy. Knock wood, I’ve been able to avoid a serious cold this season.

    Hey, Vijay! Caltech? Do you know a cat named Doug Smith?

    Yes, YUR, I am at Caltech. I am afraid I don’t know Doug Smith. Who is that?
