(Ooh!  A great stinker to end the work week!  A lot to like in this puzzle.  We have another new clue word, in “sphinx”.  The world famous clue word database of ralis95 will need to be updated yet again.  And, all of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  Lots of nice letter groupings in the clue words too.  Makes my job a little easier.  The answer letter layout was a dandy.  Very nicely cryptic.  And, the cartoon makes you think you’re back in the early ’60s, in the beatnik scene, with all the turtleneck sweaters!  At first, I thought the one reading had on Mickey Mouse ears, but I figured out it was a beret.  Tons of fun!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
