Answer:  DREW A CROWD

(Not for nothin’ – as we like to say in Brooklyn – but this seems like either a rerun, or a variation of a rerun.  The answer, that is, at least.  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We have definitely seen “rawey” before.  The answer letter layout was a decent jumble.  It’s hard to hide the answer with those Ws and Ds.  Very cool cartoon.  I’m sure Jeff can supply us with the names of all the characters.  No doubt either some of Jeff’s pals and/or favorites.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The fascination of shooting as a sport depends almost wholly on whether you are at the right or wrong end of the gun.”   —   P. G. Wodehouse

(It has been a long while since we’ve seen a P. G.
