The Cult of Neil deGrasse Tyson - POLITICO Magazine

Answer:  DOES A STELLAR JOB

(A great Jumble pun!  And a fairly challenging one.  Assuming this is Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson – not to say there aren’t other African-American astrophysicists – he has become this generation’s Carl Sagan.  He doesn’t specifically credit Sagan as his inspiration to become an astrophysicist, but he does remember the day in 1975 that Carl Sagan invited the then 17 year old to come up to Ithaca, NY to visit Cornell University.  Both of them have received criticism for their celebrityhood, but they both have inspired – and continue to inspire – a lot of kids to pursue careers in the sciences.  Neil has already outlived Carl by 2 years.  All he needs now is his own snappy catch-phrase!  A la “Billions upon billions!”

We didn’t discover any new clue words today.  They’ve all made it around the Sun numerous times.  Five of the jumbles are coming up as new for me.  The only one we’ve definitely seen before is “bmmeel”.  Strangely enough, there are SIX words on the ralis95 clue word database that begin with EMB.  Could there be another – undiscovered – one out there?  The jumble “weylea” made me look a couple of times.  The answer letter layout was a fine fifteen letter jumble, fantastically cryptic!  I was able to extract A and JOB right away.  From the SDLEELASRTO the word DOES appeared.  Then, from the LELASRT, the pun word STELLAR shone bright!

Great cartoon of the astronomy lecture.  Maybe it’s at the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, or maybe he’s guest lecturing at some high school or university.  Pretty sure it’s not a major anniversary of Neil’s birth!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
