Answer:  SUPREME

(Aah, the old Motown sound!  That was back when R&B stood for Rhythm and Blues.  I don’t know what the kids – I’m in cranky old man mode today – think it stands for, but the stuff they call R&B today does not fit my definition of Rhythm and Blues.  I always felt a little bad for Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson.  It’s not easy being “and Co.”  And of course Diana Ross became known as a bit of a diva, leaving them in the lurch.  I think, overall, that Beyoncé handled her spinoff solo career a little bit better.  Maybe, she learned from history?  She’s known to be a bit of a diva as well, but she seems to have a much better relationship with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.  But, what do I know?  I’m more of an Alt-Rock kind of guy.

There was actually a new clue word on this day, in “rumor”.  Such a simple word, and yet here it stands as the latest addition to the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  The other three were old favorites.  All of the jumbles appear to be new though.  The answer letter layout was okie-dokes.  I don’t think too many of you pulled your hair out trying to figure out the answer.  Great cartoon.  I loved the gowns and the hair, and the way Flo and Mary are holding their hands.  Even the backdrop looks very 60-ish!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(They probably could have worked this one so the answer would be:  LOTS OF LOTS, but they went the AND route.  None of the clue words are new, but three of the jumbles appear to be so.  I can vouch that we’ve seen “neess” sometime in the past.  Nice jumbles, but none gave me any trouble.  The answer letter layout was a fine jumble as well.  The cartoon and it’s dialog set things up nicely.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  On a totally unrelated note, I was reading a USA Today Sports article, this morning, on a journeyman golfer, named Rob Oppenheim.  The thing that struck me was that the article said he was 26, but turned pro . . . in 2003!  Even Tiger Woods was older than 13 when he first turned pro!  Clearly, they meant he is 36, but why don’t they have proof readers?  This isn’t a local article by the hometown newspaper, it’s the USA Today Sports section!  And, after Googling the guy, I found out that this morning’s story is mainly a rehash of something that happened in October!  I know the time between the Super Bowl and pitchers and catchers reporting is a little slow, sports-wise, but shouldn’t that mean they’d have just a little more time for accuracy???     YUR

PPS.  I found the Super Bowl 50 halftime show to be very entertaining.  I’ve been hearing two extreme reactions, that just kind of boggle my mind.  One, coming from some Millennial twit, saying that the Cold Playfeatured performance – was somehow less than the secondary performances of Beyoncé and Bruno MarsNo . . . it wasn’t.  Cold Play provided the songs, and Bruno/Beyoncé provided the dance . . . with a smattering of rhythmic singing, just kind of thrown in.  Two, is Rudy Giuliani’s ridiculous objection to Beyoncé’s performance.  Not because she was scantily dressed, and thrusting her pelvis, and shaking her lovely tushie, but because he considered it . . . “an attack on police”.  Give me a break!  The Black Lives Matter movement is not anti police, it’s just pro fairness.  Maybe Rudy needs to start an Irrelevant Retired Mayors Lives Matter movement.  He just saw all the Bruno and Beyoncé kids on the field, and just wanted to scream:  Get offa my lawn!  Go back to sleep, Rudy.     YUR
