(Our first Elsa Maxwell quotation since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  Fascinating woman!  Hollywood must have been making smarter movies when she said this.  If she were around today she might change it to overestimating!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  PRHYME MINISTER

(Ooh!  I like it!  Kinda makes the word PRIME sound like it’s two syllables, but that’s okay.  No new clue words today, however all the jumbles came up as new.  I thought that “vorrfe” was probably the best of them.  “Accept” is another one of those words that spells out in alphabetical order.  Great answer letter layout.  It’s a great jumble that gives away nothing.  Without the cartoon, and it’s dialog, this could be a difficult solve, due to the quoted/hyphenated punny first word.  I guess we’ll just have to see how those without a newspaper do!  Great likeness of Churchill, and the very proper gentleman’s gentleman.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
