(LOVE it!  That’s America, baby.  No new clue words, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  The only one I didn’t see instantly was “nearly”.  Okay, maybe “viper” took half a second.  I thought Hoyt’s answer letter layout was brilliant.  It gave nothing away.  The cartoon does a great job of covering the bases.  Blacks and Whites, a Hasidic man, an Indian woman, a mom with a stroller, a young man on a skateboard, and a guy in a wheelchair.  I wonder if Jeff snuck in a transgender on us?  That might be a little hard to do in a cartoon, but that is a part of the new us.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
