RLIGL  =  GRILL,  EVNOM  =  VENOM,  CLINHF  =  FLINCH,  BARTEY  =  BETRAY   —   Giving us:  LLEOMFHTA

Clue/Question:  In a leap year, which months have 29 days?

Answer:  ALL OF THEM

(One of the oldest gags in the book!  But, there are always a few who fall for it.  I wasn’t too happy with the jumbling of “venom”.  Just a little too obvious.  A word as simple as “grill” is actually new to the ralis95 clue word database, though.  I almost had to back into “betray”!  I was actually starting to write down combinations, starting with betray, but only because I was mentally verbalizing it as bet-ray.  That might be a personal little quirk of mine with six letter jumbles, trying to go 3 and 3.  I’ll have to remember that the next time I get a little stumped on one of those.  The answer letter layout was pretty good today.  No complaints there.  The woman in the cartoon looks a little like Luann‘s mom, in the comic strip Luann, by Greg Evans.  Actually, kind of a combination of Luann’s mom and Luann’s guidance counselor.  The guy has a little Carl Sagan, or maybe Neil Diamond, going on.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
