(As long as his baton isn’t metal – unlikely anyway – he’s probably fairly safe.  Lightning seeks out the tallest objects, so the pavilion would probably get hit any way.  An open pavilion, however, is not a safe place to seek shelter during an electrical storm.   So, if that’s the only structure nearby, probably everyone should find adequate shelter.  Especially the horn players!  Everybody back on the bus!  You just never want to fool around with lightning!

The jumbling of the clue words was great, today.  I even had to think a little to come up with “chaos”.  For some reason, I saw “comic” and “bandit” right away.  However, “suitor” was a different story.  I didn’t back into it, though.  I wrote out ten different attempts, with nothing even close.  Then, somehow I saw the word SUIT, and then it clicked.  Oh, yeah!  And, “suitor” is new to the ralis95 clue word database!  The answer letter layout was very good.  Nothing was given away, in my opinion.  The answer, though, wasn’t too tough, as bandleader and conductor are fairly synonymous.  Have a good weekend, people.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR
