Answer:  BLOOD SELLS

(I’ve been an apheresis donor a few times.  But, it’s a longer process than just a straight, whole blood donation.  I haven’t donated at all in a few years, which is too bad, but that’s the way it goes.  Lifetime, I’ve donated over 11 gallons.  They used to seem a lot more appreciative about blood donors than they are nowadays.  I remember all the level pins, attention, and special treatment they used to give you.  Back then, I always said I didn’t care about that stuff, but now that they’ve done away with it, I kind of miss it.  I always hear the demand is still high, but I guess they’ve gone the same way as corporations.  Even contest prizes used to be more substantial.  Now they offer you comparatively meager prizes, and try to make a big deal of it.  They all talk about the “bottom line” and being “responsible to the shareholders”, but I think that’s all a crock.  The fat-cats are just lining their pockets.  They’re even worse than our politicians.

Jumble?  Oh, yeah!  No new clue words, today.  But, three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “veell” before.  I thought that “pibsoy” was an excellent jumble.  It took a few looks for me to see biopsy.  Marvelous answer letter layout.  No giveaways!  Great cartoon.  A combination of creepy and hip.  Be well and do good, friends.)   – – –   YUR
