Cooperation is the thorough conviction that nobody can get there unless everybody gets there.”   —   Virginia Burden

(I wonder if she was ever in the United States Marine Corps?  This quote should be posted over the door at the House of Representatives!  The obstructionists have certainly proven the validity of this quote, because nothing has essentially changed since the George W. Bush years.  I don’t know why people like to call it “Obamacare”, when the health care reforms he originally proposed were bastardized beyond belief.  The fact that the President views it as a kind of accomplishment is a pathetic commentary on the sad state of bipartisanship in this country today.  We need more women in politics.  They’re generally more pragmatic than men.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When James Watt talked about his steam engine, some people thought he was . . .

Answer:  FULL OF HOT AIR

(Nice long answer.  Not sure how many of you guys found it difficult, though.  The answer letter layout didn’t give anything away.  I love that!  The answer just came too quickly to me.  Maybe I just relate too much to being full of hot air.  I’m sure many of you have no problem agreeing with that.  The clue word jumbling was top notch!  I had a little trouble coming up with “radial”, even though we’ve seen it before.  I didn’t have to write out combos, or anything, but it was  challenging.  Surprisingly, to me at least, “afford” is new to the ralis95 clue word database.  Very illustrative cartoon!  I hope some of you elementary teachers out there can see fit to using this in your History – and English – lessons.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS. The only bummer about today’s Jumble is that, during some research, I came across a picture of James G. Watt, who was – very unfortunately –  Secretary of the Interior, for a couple of years under Ronald Reagan.  That tool is somebody I’d sooner like to forget.      YUR
