Answer:  IN A WINDOW FRAME

(A pretty literal pun.  But, I like that Greg included a sailboat, although it’s not sinking.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  They were good, but none of them tripped me up any.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  Nicely cryptic.  Cute cartoon.  I hope Toby doesn’t rat out Eddie.  I don’t get The Buckets in my newspaper, but it looks like a sweet gig for Greg.  His dog’s name is Gi’Tli, Cherokee for ‘dog’.   Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If it is true that men are better than women because they are stronger, why aren’t our Sumo wrestlers in the government?”   —   Kishida Toshiko

(AKA: Toshiko Kishida.  I guess a lot of Asian cultures do the last name first thing.  Our first quote from this early feminist.  What’s more remarkable is that she was a feminist in 19th Century Japan!  For me, the quote was a heck of a lot easier than figuring out the author.  Thank God for Google!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
