(Palooka power!  Not bad!  There actually was a new clue word today, in “equal”.  Such a simple word.  But, our good friend, ralis95, will have to add it to his world famous clue word database.  And, it looks like all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  The answer letter layout was swell.  I like our hero’s crooked/broken nose.  Nice touch, Jeff.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
