Answer:  CLEAR THE AIR

(Excellent clue word jumbling today!  I actually tripped up a bit on “laugh”.  I usually catch myself on the five-letter jumbles that are made to look like two syllable words, when they’re only one syllable words.  But, this one caught me for a minute.  And, I backed into “native”, which just happens to be a new clue word that can be added to the ralis95 clue word database!  I was a little lazy.  Forgive me, folks.  I didn’t even try to write out different possibilities.  I solved the three others, wrote down their letters, and went straight to the cartoon.  Which happened to be fairly obvious, so I was able to back into “native”.  The answer letter layout was pretty darn good though!    The Clue/Question and the cartoon told me all I needed to know.  I’ve always been pretty good with my idioms.  I have a new found sympathy for smokers.  I still think it’s a filthy habit, but the poor schlubs are addicts!  I think it’s shameful and hypocritical that we chastise the people that are the pawns of this multi-billion dollar industry.  And, that we have a paramilitary governmental organization – the ATF – that essentially protects it!  What sick bastard decided to group together Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms anyway???  Tells you a lot about our country’s priorities.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
