Clue/Question:  Everyone thought that her new wig was . . .


(HOYT!  This was a pretty lame pun . . . even for you!  Clean out your desk, son.  Yer done!  Jeff.  Put a call into Security.  They’ll need to escort your partner to the door.  Make sure he doesn’t take any staplers, or anything.  “Hair-larious”???  What do you guys want me to do . . . quit?  ‘Cause I’ll do it.  I’m coming up on my 4000th post anyway. The thrill is fading.  There seems to be more ebb than flow these days.  “Likes” are down, comments are down.  At least my spam is up!  Uhgggg.  And, Google Adsense has been ripping me off too.  The bastids!  Looks like it’s time to schedule Uncle Rave’s Farewell Tour.  All good things gotta come to an end, folks.  It was a good run.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  “Rotary” appears to be a new clue word.  ralis95, check some of your older files.  This just doesn’t seem right to me.   —   YUR

Book burning

Where they have burned books, they will end in burning human beings.”   —   Heinrich Heine

(Our first Heine quotation since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  Many of you may think that the Nazis invented book burning.  Oh, no.  This heinous act – libricide – goes back thousands of years.  Almost as long as Man has been using parchment.  Probably longer, when you consider some sort of Philistine-like people smashing clay and stone tablets.  Obviously, not the same as “burning”, but the end result is the destruction of the written word.  The silencing of ideas.  It’s a grand gesture of intimidation and intolerance to politically incorrect thinking.  It’s about oppression and control.  Don’t rationalize, or be blasé about government – and corporate – censorship.  Fight it.  “Do not smile at the visionary who anticipates the same revolution in the realm of the visible as has taken place in the spiritual. Thought precedes action as lightning precedes thunder.”  That’s right, Mr. Heine.  Keep opening those minds.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
