The urge to gamble is so universal and its practice so pleasurable that I assume it must be evil.”   —   Heywood Broun

(This photo is actually his son, Heywood Hale Broun, a television sportscaster that I always admired.  He was very intelligent, sort of like Howard Cosell, but much less annoying.  I remember Heywood calling some World Series games, but mostly for the Triple Crown horse races.  No offense to Howard though.  He was great too.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  NO LAUGHING MATTER

(It really wasn’t, because Nate Bargatze is one funny dude!  Like the spiky haired . . . person, I would be majorly bummed!  Fine pun though!  For some reason, I saw the answer immediately.  I guess the phrase is heavily ingrained in my brain.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Five of the jumbles appear to be new though, with only “kiylle” having definitely been used before.  The only jumble to give me any trouble was “totrah”, but I did see it after about a minute.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful sixteen letter jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.

Great cartoon of the outside of Jokesters Comedy Club, in Las Vegas!  WordPress does not acknowledge the word “jokester”!  They are SO strange sometimes!  Jeff might go to Vegas for the “gaming”, but it looks like David goes for the shows!  I’ve been to Vegas once.  Didn’t gamble.  Saw one show that didn’t really excite me, but I enjoyed myself.  I think most of us know songs by The Letterman.  And, they do do a nice show.  But, it’s geared for a slightly more sedate audience.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
