Clue/Question:  The author of the book about the U.S. Interstate Highway System had the – – –

Answer:  WRITE OF WAY

(A good stinky pun.  A little like automobile exhaust.  But at least it doesn’t smell like diesel.  That stuff REALLY stinks!  The Federal Highway Act of 1956 was a monumental enterprise authorized by President Dwight D. Eisenhower that created the standardized cross-country driving system of highways.  Despite being proclaimed “complete” in 1992 it is still an ongoing concern.  They’re still working on I-86 in New York.  Strangely enough, there’s another – shorter – I-86 in the state of Idaho!  I never realized that some of these numeric designations repeated.  There are a few that actually go coast to coast, but I guess the bulk of them repeat, depending on which side of the Mississippi River they are.  That’s my guess at least.

We’ve seen all of today’s clue words before.  But all of today’s jumbles are coming up as new!  I didn’t find any of them tough though.  The answer letter layout was a tidy ten letter jumble.  I thought it was nicely cryptic.  It was just pretty easy to pick up on the pun of right of way.  We see a lot of word play with: ride, right, write, wright and rite.

Today’s cartoon looks like a lecture at a library to me.  Everybody appears to be adults.  It looks like his map is showing us I-90, I-80 and I-40.  I’ve only been on I-90 and I-80, so I’m guessing about I-40.  Nice Friday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
