Charles Dickens (1812-1870)

Every baby born into the world is a finer one than the last.”   —   Charles Dickens

(From the standpoint of the parents maybe.  But, from the viewpoint of socially conscious stewards of a planet, that has been said to be on the brink, an argument to the contrary could just as easily be made.  During Dickens’ heyday, the mid – later 19th Century, the world’s human population was about 1.4 Billion.  Today it stands at over 6.9 Billion, and counting!  It took the world roughly 11,870 years to get to 1.4 Billion, but in a little over 140 years we’ve added another 5.5 BillionIf this doesn’t disturb you – even just a little bit – then have an EEG run . . . you might be brain dead.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When the jukebox wouldn’t work, it caused Fonzie to . . .


(A little nostalgia for a show about nostalgia!  I like it.  Some tough clue words today.  I don’t think any of them were new, but they were all well-scrambled.  Even “hello” gave me a little pause.  Again, we’re seeing a word that we saw in the last week or so, in “cloak”, although with different scrambling.  It looks like Dave is trying different ways to trip us up.  I always have a little trouble getting “siphon”, and “sculpt” is one of those exceptions to the theory that scrambled words with more vowels are the harder ones to get.  Nice depiction of The Fonz, Potsie and Richie.  I bet Ron Howard would love to have a full head of hair, like that, again!  Be well and do good, my friends.)   —    YUR
