Answer:  JOB SECURITY

(I thought today’s answer was a little tricky.  None of the clue words are new, but three of the jumbles appear to be.  They’ve given us “kisyr” before.  I thought the jumble for “reject” was pretty good.  The answer letter layout is what threw me!  I kept seeing JOY, even though it didn’t make much sense.  Plus, it left me with BUTECRIS.  But, that was enough for me to see SECURITY, and then the light bulb came on.  I’m working with the small Jumble this week, so I can’t make out any detail in today’s cartoon.  I wonder if this old photo inspired the Elvis Presley movie?  I’ll have to ask my local taproom about the Jail House Brewing Company.  They’ve got a cool website, and some tasty looking brews!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Man is born a predestined idealist, for he is born to act.”   —   Oliver Wendell Holmes

(This was a tough quote for me to decode!  All the vowels were fairly obvious, but BORN threw me for a bit, as did the two long words.  And, I didn’t even see the author’s name until I was nearly half way done!  Kind of strange for me.  Did anyone else struggle to get this one going?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
