Answer:  TIMELY MANNER

(Yes!  That is an apropos pun!  No new clue words today, however three of the jumbles came up as new.  We have definitely seen “milti” before.  The answer letter layout was wondrous.  Nothing given away.  And, a great cartoon.  The big cherry-picker, in the background, puts me in mind of the giant construction crane that fell in the Tribeca neighborhood of lower Manhattan, this morning.  What a tragedy!  At least one dead and three injured, two seriously.  The HUGE crane fell on Worth St., between Church St. and Hudson St., destroying a number of cars, and damaging a few buildings.  Bricks are everywhere.  Considering the time of day, and the immensity of the crane, it’s a minor miracle that more people were not killed and injured.  But, it’s still a tragedy none-the-less.  My heart and thoughts go out to the victims and their families.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
