Never apologize for showing feeling.  When you do so, you apologize for truth.”   —   B. Disraeli

(Kind of goes against the whole “stiff upper lip” mentality.  But, honest – and hopefully *appropriate* – displays of feeling should not be frowned upon.  It’s 7/11, kids.  Enjoy a Slurpee, today!  Oops!  Too soon!)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  It didn’t take long for Richard Starkey‘s parents to realize he was going to . . .

Answer:  BE A STARR

(Wow!  How many of you had to back into “fiasco” like I did?  The other three clue words were pretty obvious, but I had to look at the cartoon, *figure out* the answer, and then try to come up with a word with an “A” and an “S” in those positions.  Even knowing what I needed didn’t make it any more obvious.  It still took some thought!  Great drawing, Jeff!  And, in case you hadn’t heard, Ringo Starr – nee Richard Starkey – turned 71 this morning!  Happy Birthday, Ringo!  Many, many more, please.  The world needs its icons!  Be well, friends.)   —   YUR
