Answer:  OF SOUND MIND

(Even though he kinda looks a little like a mad scientist in this cartoon!  I think all inventors have a kind of mad scientist look to them.  It’s just a certain intensity.  This wasn’t an easy solve today.  You really had to key on the mustachioed man’s comment to figure this one out.

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “limep” having definitely been used before.  I thought that “dsedto” was the toughest of the jumbles, but “canenu” was also great.  I didn’t struggle to get “forgo” . . . this time!  The answer letter layout was another well-veiled jumble.  I don’t think it was obvious, in the least.

The cartoon is another fine period piece.  Even though I kid, the likeness of Mr. Edison is remarkable.  As was the drawing of the phonograph, and the prim looking woman.  “The Wizard of Menlo Park” is almost always shown in a three piece suit!  Even when he’d go out on camping expeditions with Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone.  Things may have gotten a little too informal these days, but I’m glad we don’t have to dress up like that – all the time – anymore!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
