(Way to be a downer, Leonard!  This could very well be true, but it’s still more productive to be optimistic about these things.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DISMALL

(This pun would be much more stinky – and amusing – if it wasn’t so true!  Various department stores were always the anchors, or keystones, to our malls, and many of them have closed.  The smaller stores that relied a lot on impulse buyers are also going under.  The situation has totally gotten out of hand.

All of today’s clue words are already on the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  But, all four jumbles are coming up as new.  Surprisingly, it took me two looks to see “manly”, but the others came to me right away.  The answer letter layout was a very simple seven letter jumble.  But, it got the job done.

Fine cartoon of a practically empty shopping mall.  A security guard and two older gals getting in their walking exercise.  Not quite sure what a Leftorium would sell.  It looks like the old J&D department store is closed for good.  It’s a good thing that Jeff & David have an online presence.  😉  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
