The first rule of hurricane coverage is that every broadcast must begin with palm trees bending in the wind.”   —   Carl Hiaasen

(But of course!  It’s a tropical storm.  You need to show tropical trees.  Actually, there are a lot of things where the corporate media uses stock footage.  When it came to their reporting on al Qaeda, how many times did we see the guys dressed in black, swinging on the monkey bars and crawling around on that obstacle course?  It got to be comical.  Or, how about the way they always show ISIS/ISIL in black clothing and masks!  If they’re so “fearless”, as the media tries to portray, then why are they always hiding their faces???  I tell ya, it lends some credence to some of the “conspiracy” theories.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  INSINK

(THAT’S a stinky pun!  Probably inspired by Jeff’s second favorite band!  All of today’s clue words were old favorites, but three of the jumbles did come up as new.  We have seen “finsf” before.  The answer letter layout was as cryptic as it could possibly be, for a six letter answer.  The cartoon was workmanlike.  Plenty of comments on the Sunday Jumble!  And, well over 4300 queries yesterday.  That’s well above the general average of 2500 to 3000, and WAY above what we normally see for a Sunday.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —    YUR
