All water has a perfect memory and is forever trying to get back to where it was.”   —   Toni Morrison

(A nice quote.  But, how come the only Toni we’ve ever gotten quotes from is from Ms. Morrison?  How about Toni McNaron, or Toni Braxton, or Toni Childs, or Toni Collette, or Toni Tennille?  I’m sure there are other quote worthy Tonis out there!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SPEECHLESS

(A nice traditional stinky pun!  And, appropriate for the season too.  Most politicians rely on speech writers, although some are proficient at speaking extemporaneously.  When our current President gives a formal speech he can sound presidential.  I just wish he had a speech writer for his tweets and rallies!

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends, but – surprisingly – all of the jumbles came up as new.  Usually, one or two of them are reruns.  No stumpers for me today.  The answer letter layout was a respectable ten letter jumble.  The prevalence of the E’s and S’s made for an easy solve.

Fine campaign headquarters cartoon.  I don’t remember the last major U.S. politician who had a mustache!  Seems like they’ve all been clean shaven during my lifetime.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
