Answer:  FLIPPED

(Very cute!  I bet they had to send very specific instructions to all of the newspapers.  No new clue words today, however all of the jumbles came up as new.  It took me a few good looks before I was able to see “wealth”.  The story of my life?  The answer letter layout even tripped me up for a few seconds.  The cartoon was fun.  And, even though I’m adept at reading upside down, I did turn the paper over to read their dialog.  My farsightedness  seems to be getting worse.  As fun as today’s was, I don’t think it will draw anywhere near the queries of yesterday’s Jumble.  A lot of people had trouble with “osprey” and “exert”, and the final answer.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I envy paranoids; they actually feel people are paying attention to them.”   —   Susan Sontag

(From the ridiculous to the sublime?  I’m sure this was said tongue-in-cheek.  However, at the very least, there would appear to be a polar opposite mind set at play here.  Maybe not.  I’m sure that a lot of people who think that no one is paying attention to them, feel that that is due to a conspiracy!  Don’t dwell on these things, folks.  Just live your lives.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I wonder how Susan would feel about Getty Images owning essentially all photos of her on the internet???      YUR
