Answer:  OH, THANK HEAVEN

(A nice, long, 13-letter answer!  I did not see it immediately, but it didn’t take me too long to get it.  No new clue words, however three of the jumbles came up as new.  We have definitely seen “verhit” before.  I thought the answer letter layout was a dandy!  A great jumble, that didn’t give away anything.  The cartoon was a lot of fun.  David Hoyt’s “Phew!  I’m so relieved.”, combined with the two letter answer box, followed by the comma, were what lead me to the answer.  Immediately, I figured the 2-letter word was either NO or OH, but Dave’s comment sewed it up for me.  For those of you not familiar with Non Sequitur, it’s a comic panel/strip by Wiley Miller, that a lot of newspapers carry.  It’s a very satirical comic, that has a number of recurring themes, one of them being people at, or approaching, the Pearly Gates.  It is one of my favorites, for a number of reasons.  Jeff’s Saint Peter looks to be very kindly.  I just hope this doesn’t jinx Hoyt’s health!  Go get a physical, cuz!  At the very least you have to hang around long enough to see your Cubbies win the World Series!  They are definitely looking like the team to beat this year!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
