Democracy substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by the corrupt few.”   —   George Bernard Shaw

(Which is probably why we have the two party “system” here in the United States!  Like so much of corporate America, it falls just short of a monopoly.  But, enough for a colluding cabal.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  NOW YOURE TALKIN

(Had me stumped, for a minute or two!  Figured the middle word HAD to be YOU’RE, based on the available letters.  Couldn’t do a thing with ONANLWIKT . . . until I realized that the last word ALSO had an apostrophe!  Then it all fell into place.  I think all the Star Wars references were a bit of misdirection, on the part of the guys!  Lots of fun though.  Great answer letter layout.  No new clue words.  Only one returning jumble, in “tonkyt”.  Two of the clue words, “accent” and “knotty” spell out in alphabetical order.  Nice cartoon of a nice young family.  Aah, yes.  I remember those days, very well!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
