If the fools do not control the world, it isn’t because they are not in the majority.”   —   Edgar Watson Howe

(Too true, Ed!  Unfortunately, I believe they ARE in the majority, and too many of them DO control the world!  Why “bailout” the airlines and other big corporations, at the taxpayers’ expense, when they can borrow as much money as they want/need at basically 0% interest?  Money should only be going to small businesses and the workers who can’t pay their bills.  Despite the ridiculousness of “corporate personhood”, corporations are NOT people.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  RESTORE IT

(Oh.  Well this is definitely a groaner of a stinky pun!  I can’t blame the language elitist for giving this a thumbs down.  I guess they could have gone with a hyphen, and quotation marks around store, but that might have made solving this even easier than it was.

We have definitely seen all of these clue words before.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, but we’ve seen “irrog” sometime before.  It took me a couple of looks to see “mascot” for some reason.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.

Fine cartoon of a couple looking at a corner store.  What do you think; do they keep the name “Martha’s Market”, or try to come up with something fresh?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I donated blood yesterday!  It’s been nearly three years for me, but lifetime I must be around 12 gallons.  It felt good, especially knowing that the need is great right now.  If you’re physically able, and Coronavirus symptom free, please strongly consider donating blood.  It’s quick and relatively painless, and we’ve all got to do our part.   —   YUR
