Clue/Question:  The fancy new airline had – – –

Answer:  I’ve got NOTHING, folks!  ***HIGH STANDARDS***

(Wow!  That was fast!  Five answers right away.  I must be losing it, folks.  My low brow, domestic beer wit couldn’t conceive the HIGH STANDARDS.  Oh, yeah.  No new clue words.  The answer letter layout threw me for a loop.  And, the cartoon does set it up nicely.  I just couldn’t see it.  Thank you, Patrick, Doris, Pat, Auntie Lyn and Frank Rickard.  Maybe Auntie Lyn should take over for Uncle Rave?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(For the first word I tried HARD, HAND and SIGN.  I guess I could try RASH and HASH and maybe THIS, but I am just not getting IT today.  Maybe one of the circles is wrong in my newspaper?  I don’t know.  I see Bono is one of the passengers, and some other rich, old people, including Jeff Knurek – maybe – but with only three vowels I am just grasping at straws.  I’m not picking up any “bonus clue” either.  They have stumped yer uncle!  Maybe this is a sign that I should retire.  Sorry, folks.  I’ve let you down.)   —   YUR
