Clue/Question: Before her upcoming speech to the legislature, the senator did much – – –
(Very clever pun! There were no new clue words to add to the ralis95 clue word database today. I forgot to tell you guys that the man, the myth, the legend, sent me an updated version of the database the other day. We are up to 3155 words! Three of the jumbles came up as new, while we have definitely seen “purep” before. I thought that “rucace” was an excellent jumble. It took me multiple looks to see “accrue”. And, I thought the answer letter layout did a wonderful job of keeping the answer hidden. Another great jumble. The cartoon did a good job of setting up the pun. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
