Answer:  BYPASS IT

(Not a gimme!  I had some trouble with “biceps”, and thought I’d be able to back into it.  But, the final solution was nowhere’s near clear, to me, without the B and S!  Coming back to it, I was able to see it, although I kind of questioned whether there was a single “bicep”?  WordPress seems to accept it, so now I’m wondering if “biceps” is a legitimate word, for a Jumble clue word!  Hmm!  Maybe we’ve had this discussion before?  Anyway, I thought it was a great jumble, and eventually I was able to solve it.  Nicely cryptic answer letter layout.  It doesn’t give the answer away.  Very clinical cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
