(Such a  l o n g  clue/question, for such a short answer!  I don’t know . . . maybe I’d like this one better if Jeff had drawn that cute young thang from the Citi Thank You card commercial.  The one that plays the song Into the Wild, by L.P.!  I think the guy who’s watching her climb is Alex Honnold, a climber who likes to use no ropes when he climbs.  You may have seen him on 60 Minutes, or Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood, or some other news show.  The guy is incredible.  A little out there, but incredible.  The wife and I have wondered whether the commercial was done with green screen technology, or if it’s actual climbing.  I’m guessing that the young lady is an actual climber as well, but I don’t know for sure.

No new clue word, today.  The jumbling was fine.  Answer letter layout was fine.  Nice little play on words.  I doubt many of you had a whole lot of difficulty getting this.  Well, after all, it is only Monday!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Adolescence represents an inner emotional upheaval, a struggle between the eternal human wish to cling to the past and the equally powerful wish to get on with the future. (Louise J. Kaplan) (Photo credit: Foto_di_Signorina)

Children, even infants, are capable of sympathy.  But only after adolescence are we capable of compassion.”   —   Louise J. Kaplan

(I’m not sure if I agree with this.  It seems like a bit of a generalization.  Surely some children are capable of compassion.  And, what about “adults” who seem to have no compassion?  Are they infantile in their thinking, or somehow have they never really fully progressed from the adolescent mind-set?  Hmm!  Any opinions on this?  Be well and do good . . . children.)   —   YUR
