Answer:  LOW RENTS

(OK.  The pun is supposed to come from the fact that Death Valley is the lowest area – elevation-wise – in the United States.  Yeah, I know.  It’s only moderately funny.  They can’t all be winners.  There were no new clue words today, but I liked the jumbling of both “oblige” and “sprain”.  One is hard for some because it starts with a vowel, and the other jumbled version leads you to believe that it might be two syllables.  Excellent job on the answer letter layout!  If you didn’t know about Death Valley, or you didn’t pick up on the sign in the cartoon, then you might have had a little trouble solving this.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
