Answer:  ALL THE STOPS

(When I saw the traffic circle and the clown, my fist thought went to circus, as in Piccadilly Circus.  But, Piccadilly’s not really a traffic circle, it’s more of a pedestrian circle.  I saw it once, about 100 years ago!  Having the reduced sized Jumble again this week, it was a little tough to make out all the detail.  But, with the help of the light-up magnifying glass, that Carol gave Mom, I was able to see all.  It’s a great pun though.  Traffic circles can be very intimidating, to me.  As long as you know where you’re going, you’re okay.  But, if you have any question as to where you’re supposed to go, they can be pretty harry.  If you are behind me, you better be prepared for me to stop, even if they’re designed to prevent stopping.  No new clue words, and only two of the jumbles came up as new today.  We’ve seen both “beata” and “lortl” before.  Very nice job on the answer letter layout.  Charmingly cryptic!  And, a loaded cartoon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

What marks the artist is his power to shape the material of pain we all have.”   —   Lionel Trilling

(Our very first Trilling quote, at least since I’ve been posting these spoilers!  Ooh!  He and his wife, Diana, were members of the New York Intellectuals!  Where as your dear old uncle is a member of the New York Loudmouths.  And, my dear wife, Carol, is a member of the New York Apologists!  “Oh, don’t mind him.  He’s just a little grumpy in the morning . . . and the afternoon . . . and the . . .”  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
