(Fantastic!  I think there was a fairly high level of difficulty with today’s Jumble.  I struggled to get “urchin”, and as it turns out, the last time we had this clue word it was with the exact same jumbling.  Some of you – no doubt – had some trouble in getting both “astray” and “induct”.  And, “system” was no gimme.  It turns out “heaven” is going to be a new addition to the ralis95 clue word database.  The answer letter layout was done masterfully.  I had to think a bit before coming up with the answer.  Fun pun, and a great Jeff Knurek cartoon.  Great Sunday Jumble, Hoyt and Knurek!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Every great and commanding movement in the annals of the world is the triumph of enthusiasm.”   —   Emerson

( . . . and, an unbiased, non-manipulative press.  Today’s corporate media could downplay, and marginalize, the second coming of Christ.  They’ve successfully numbed us into submission, by hyping fear and placating us with the myths of security.  Without risk and trepidation life is not life, it’s simple existence.  Do you want to merely exist, or do you want to live?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
