Answer:  ILL WILL

(Reminds me of an episode of All In The Family, when Archie goes to the hospital.  He’s in a semi-private room, and he doesn’t realize that the French speaking gentleman on the other side of the curtain is black.  Archie started off the show as a huge bigot, but over the years he mellowed out quite a bit.  Norman Lear did a great job of showing that most bigotry is based on ignorance.  All In The Family was probably the greatest ground breaking show in the history of television.  It woke up a lot of the country.

No new clue words today, but some interesting ones.  The jumble “glico” has been used before, but the other three came up as new.  I liked the jumbles for “asylum” and “influx”.  Not much Hoyt could do with the answer letter layout, with only three distinct letters.  I don’t think many of you had any trouble solving today’s answer, but you never know.  Excellent cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
