(Which reminds me of a great – yet terribly homophobic – joke.  But, we won’t go there.  No new clue words today, but there was some decent jumbling.  Just a so-so job on the answer letter layout.  But, I liked the pun.  And, I really liked Jeff’s cartoon.  A little Kermit.  Some kind of newt or salamander.  And, a toad kind of reminiscent of Michigan J. Frog!  We all know how Jeff likes all things Michigan, except Michigan State.  Not the toughest Jumble, but a fun one.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I no doubt deserved my enemies, but I don’t believe I deserved my friends.”   —   Walt Whitman

(This is a pretty good example of how the written word can be misconstrued.  Read one way, with positivity and sincerity, it’s a compliment to the friends, because he feels they’re too good to him.  Read another way, with a little negativity and sarcasm, it can come off like:  With friends like this . . . who needs enemies?!?!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR 

PS.  Looks like he could have been a wise guy, to me!   —   YUR
