Clue/Question:  When the Senate struck down the bill to protect the trees, it was an – – –

Answer:  AX OF CONGRESS

(Kind of an unusual Jumble.  Not at all difficult.  Just a little incongruous. 

All of today’s clue words have been used before, but all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  I’d say that “duesox” might have been the toughest.  When I was a kid, I thought the movie “Exodus” was about a virtuous Israel.  How can you miss, with Paul Newman as the hero?  But, when I grew up and read the history books, my opinion changed immediately.  The answer letter layout was a great twelve letter jumble.  It gave nothing away.  The clue/question and the quotation marks made this an easy solve though.

I don’t know if Jeff was alluding to a specific bill in the 1800s, but he went out of his way to make the cartoon a period piece.  Maybe it was a little misdirection?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    This cutting-edge pun made me chuckle. Good setup.

    The period piece theme of the cartoon fits the pre-chainsaw age. Of course protecting trees wasn’t a high priority back then.
