(I wonder if there are currently any brother pitchers in the major leagues?  Back when I was a kid, there were the Niekro brothers, Joe and Phil.  They were entertaining because they both could throw the knuckleball, although Phil was better known for it.  They both had long and productive careers, 22 and 24 years, respectively.  I also remember the Perry brothers, Jim and Gaylord.  They both had storied careers, as well.  There have been plenty of others, but they were either long before me, or one of them was much more dominant, and longer lasting, than the other.  There are loads of other brothers in baseball, playing other positions.  The Upton brothers even play for the same team!

There were no new clue words, today.  But, all of the jumbling appeared to be new, to me.  “Glory” is one of those words that nicely spells out in alphabetical order.  None of them gave me any trouble.  The answer letter layout worked well.  Nothing obvious about it.  Fun cartoon.  Nothing too fancy for a Monday.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
