(Lots of great photos of 1930s skyscraper construction!  I seem to remember a lot of the construction people being Native American, lots of Mohawk, but I’m sure there were a wide variety ethnicities involved.  Tough work!  Hey, we have another new clue word today, in “tariff”.  The ralis95 clue word database continues to expand!  And, guess what?  All of today’s jumbles came up as new.  Pretty cool.  The answer letter layout was another dandy jumble.  It did not give anything away.  The cartoon shows a documentary of a tandem of riveters, presumably joining two different beams, with a hot rivet.  One skywalker is the bracer, and the other is the hammerer.  I don’t know if that’s their official names, but that’s what I call them.  Kind of strange that yesterday’s Jumble showed a guy with a Mohawk haircut, and today’s shows a job that has largely been held by a history of Mohawk construction workers.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    GLITCH took me a little bit of time and TARIFF took much longer. The final answer was pretty obvious. Nice pun.
