(Tough cookies, Georgie Porgie!    That’s what you get for all that taxation without representation thing!  Thought we was chumps, didja?  Well, we showed you a thing, or two.   Didn’t we?  Of course it did help that we had the home field advantage, and you had to cross the Atlantic Ocean – repeatedly – to get to us.  And of course, there was that whole ongoing thing with the French that you had to deal with.  And, we didn’t always stand in a big, dopey line and allow your guys to just shoot us, like you were used to.  Guerrilla warfare is a bitch, ain’t it?  We really more outlasted you and frustrated you than anything.  But, we got what we wanted.

There were no new clue words today.  Three of the jumblings were new, to me.  I only see “bravo”‘s being used before.  I especially liked the jumbling of “locale”.  The answer letter layout was not so revealing.  And, that’s a good thing.  Great cartoon!  You can even make out some of John Hancock‘s signature, if you look closely.   Be well and do good, friends.  Have a safe and happy fourth!)   —   YUR
