(LOVED IT!!!  Looks like Bugs has got his Mick Jagger strut down.  Porky looks a little possessed.  Marvin the Martian looks like your typical, subdued bassist, although he’s actually playing a form of keyboard.  But why, of all things, is Daffy wailing out . . . on a banjo???  C’mon!  That boy needs a Gibson, or a Fender.

The clue words were jumbled nicely.  None too tough, but we do have a new word, in “yonder”.  Of today’s clue words, I’m relatively sure this one puzzled the most of you.  I know our good friend, ralis95, will enjoy adding “yonder” to the clue word database!  The answer letter layout was nice and cryptic.  Nothing really stands out in it.  I can’t imagine too many people having much difficulty in getting the answer.  Unless you’re just too sophisticated and serious, for things as banal as cartoons.  But then again, you probably wouldn’t be doing word games in the funny papers if you were like that!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

With the past, I have nothing to do; nor with the future.  I live now.”   —   Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

(Is it just me, or are we seeing a lot of these live in the moment kind of quotes lately?  It’s not that I really mind them, or anything.  To a certain extent, I do agree with the philosophy.  When you look at the three, as absolutes though – the past, present and future – the present is really all any of us has.  However, I have a strong disdain for absolutes.  We can’t look at the world in terms of now and then, good and bad, or black and white.  It’s all varying shades of gray.  The present – and the future, to an extent – is/are shaped by the past.  To a large part, we are the product of our experiences.  And, we can’t simply be in the moment, as though there’s not going to be a future.  What we do right now can have a major effect on things to come.  We can’t dwell on the past, or be consumed with worry about the future, but we do need to remember the past, and at least consider the future consequences of our present actions.  Living for today is fine, as long as we all practice the golden rule.  Behaving without regards to others, or the future, is extremely selfish, and can result in a lot of chaos and pain.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
