Answer:  LONG STORY

(And, he wouldn’t be just whistling Dixie either!  That is quite a tome.  Maybe not the world’s longest book, but it is definitely right up there.  I wonder if they strung together all of my comments, from these spoilers over the past six years, if I’d come close to “War and Peace”.  Probably not.

No new clue words today, but each jumble appears to be new.  They flowed pretty smoothly for me though.  I liked today’s answer letter layout.  Nothing obvious about it.  The cartoon and question kind of makes the answer pretty obvious though.  Still, a satisfying Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
