Answer:  LAST, BUT NOT LEASED

(Obviously NOT in Manhattan!  This was one of the tougher Sunday Jumbles, for me in, quite a while!  None of the clue words were new, but five of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “tantia” before.  “Accept” spells out in alphabetical order.  It took a couple of looks for me to see the “unseen”!  The answer letter layout made for an ultra-cryptic jumble.  It took me a few minutes to come up with the answer.  Something told me the middle words were BUT NOT – only one “N” ruled out AND NOT – and eliminating those letters revealed the rest of the answer to me.  Pretty basic cartoon, but it did the trick.  This may be one of the last Sunday puzzle spoilers I’ll be posting.  My newspaper just increased the monthly subscription rate by nearly 50%, from $42 to $62!  This is not worth it to me, so I’ll probably be getting the Monday – Saturday from the ArkansasOnline, and I’ll have to forego the Sunday.  I’ll have to see when this current month’s subscription ends, but I wanted to give you guys a heads up.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
