Answer:  FOOTHOLD

(It’s nice to see that they have progressed from their earlier toehold.  From here, they will work towards a stronghold.  But, it’s unlikely that they will achieve a stranglehold.  Nobody really wants to deal with a monopoly, anyway.  We don’t want/need collusion among the bigger players, either.  Consumers need choices and fair competition.

There were no new clue words today.  ralis95 can rest easy.  But, all of the jumbles came up as new, to me.  I only hesitated, slightly, on “pardon”.  The rest came to me immediately.  The answer letter layout was cryptic enough, but I thought the whole set up made the answer fairly obvious.  The cartoon definitely got the point across.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  There are a lot of great birthdays today!  A lot of my favorites, like:  Norm Crosby, Tommy Lee Jones, Oliver Stone, Dan Marino, Josh Charles and Prince Harry.  Happy birthday, men!      YUR
