Answer:  PASSAGE OF TIME

(Great answer letter layout.  It did an admirable job of keeping the answer hidden.  I knew right away that the last word had to be TIME, and that the middle word was very likely OF.  The EASPSAG gave me PASSAGE.  None of the clue words are new, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  They’ve definitely used “sipeo” before.  I thought both “eytsa” and “gemapi” were excellent jumbles!  Neither one of the actual words jumped out at me.  Good, basic cartoon.  It looks like Jeff didn’t have enough time to draw the rest of the Palace of Westminster.  Kinda makes it look like a stand alone tower.  A lot of you regulars seemed pretty familiar with “magnet schools”, but just like with “first-hand news”, on Friday, we had a lot more queries for the answer of yesterday’s Jumble, than usual.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Unc, the masses know where to come for help!!

    It amazes me how often a simple little word can be so difficult to unjumble! And how one letter can change a word and make it a real bugger!

    For instance — MAGPIE — there you have IMAGE plain as day. Nice, simple little word. But, then that P gets thrown in for good measure. I had to work for that one. And then it seemed so familiar once I got it. Maybe we’ve had it recently.

    So glad that I got TIME and OF quickly and figured out PASSAGE.
    Grand puzzler! The guyz never cease to amaze. And you too Unc.

    Probably not recently, LL, but we’ve had it at least two or three times before today. It seems no matter what the jumble, getting the word is a chore, for most of us!
