Answer:  REVOLUTIONARY

(My paper doesn’t carry the strip, but I think it’s still a going concern.  I know Johnny Hart died a while back, but I think his kid or grandkid, is running with it still.  I think he also did the Wizard of Id.  I’ve always been a big fan of the funny pages!

No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “latyl” before.  At first I was very impressed by the 13-letter answer letter layout, and the answer being just the one 13-letter word.  But, after looking at the cartoon, and the clue/question, the answer became pretty obvious, to me.  What are the three round things below the cave painting in the background?  Is this supposed to be a primitive TV, a la The Flintstones?  That Jeff is such a kidder.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
