Clue/Question:  He didn’t buy the drum set because he wanted . . .

Answer:  MORE BANG FOR HIS BUCK

(Very nice!  I can see some of you having some difficulty getting this one.  I had a tough time getting “purser”.  I’m never sure with these kind of words if they should end in OR or ER.  So, I had to back into it.  I liked the jumbling of “fiasco”, but I recognized it pretty quickly.  Surprisingly, “grumpy” is a new word!  ralis95 will have to add it to his clue word database.  The answer letter layout was nice and cryptic.  I felt it gave away nothing.  Great drawing, too.  Jeff showing off some of his musical knowledge.  Nice going, bro.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Rest in Peace, Helen Thomas!  You were one of the all-time great White House correspondents.  You were a true trail blazer.  You didn’t accept non-answers.  You held their feet to the fire, like a good journalist should.  Too bad today, the business is mainly full of corporate kiss-up hacks.  Your grit and perseverance is sorely missing these days.  I will long remember you as what a real journalist should be.  Thank you for being you.   —   YUR
