Meanwhile, I have a soul, and my soul cannot be confined to any human institution.”   —   Huston Smith

(Our first Huston Smith quotation, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  Very interesting man.  I did not quite get the quote until I read a bit of his bio.  But, now it makes perfect sense to me.  I’ve always considered myself much more spiritual, than religious.  And, it looks like he arrived at that as well.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  TOOK THE METRO NORTH TRAIN FROM TARRYTOWN

Just Kidding!  The Answer is:  HEADED SOUTH

(But, that’s how he might get there today!  But of course, there is nothing punny about taking the Metro North.  Irony, yes.  But, punny, no.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites again.  But also, all of the jumbles came up as new.  I was thrown for a few seconds by both “mashe” and “firdat”.  Great jumbles!  It’s been a while since we’ve seen “hairdo”.  The answer letter layout was a marvelous jumble.  If you’re not familiar with where Sleepy Hollow is, I’m sure this might have been a struggle to answer.  Jeff’s got a great sense of humor.  Ol’ Ichabod was a teacher, so he shows him standing at the gate of the Sleepy Hollow Middle School.  I guess he’s made peace with that nasty Headless Horseman.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
