English: This is the official seal for the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) which was established by an act of Congress in March 1915. The seal depicts the first human-controlled, powered flight made by the Wright brothers in December 1903 at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. NACA was later incorporated into the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in 1958. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

(Gee.  I guess things were really looking up for them that day!  Nice big shot of . . . the sky, one guy pointing up, another guy giving two thumbs up, and EVERYBODY gazing up!  Wow.  I guess Jeff really thought we’d need a road map to solve today’s answer!  With all that we were given today, if you struggled getting the answer, then maybe the Jumble isn’t really for you.  Try the word search!  That can be fun, too!  I’m just messing with you, folks.  Keep doing the Jumble.  They won’t all be this obvious.  There were no new clue words today, but there was some sneaky jumbles in there.  I actually had to back into “lethal”.  I kept wondering if lathe was spelled like llama!  See.  I’m certainly no genius, myself.  The answer letter layout was fine.  It didn’t really give anything away.  I think I would have started with “slowly”.  Eh!  It’s a nice cartoon.  I think everyone looking up was definitely overkill though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Police Officer Breaking the Law

Police Officer Breaking the Law (Photo credit: Call To Adventure)

A law is valuable not because it is law, but because there is right in it.”   —   Henry Ward Beecher

(Notice he doesn’t say that all laws are valuable!  Laws are supposed benefit or protect us, whether the many or the few.  But a law that benefits the few, to the detriment of the many, cannot be viewed as just, and should be changed.  If you’ve ever been subjected to RLUIPA you’d know what I mean.  The intentions of the law were noble, and intended to correct flaws in earlier laws.  But, whereas it was designed to be more of a shield for the few, it is often being used to bludgeon the many.  It stands for the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act, and the big mistake, in my opinion, is that it’s one law that would be better served if it were two laws.  Institutionalized persons religious rights are, and should be, a separate issue from religious land use.  Lumping them together was both lazy and foolish, again, in my opinion.  As a tax paying property owner, guess which part I, and many many people like me, have a problem with?  There are some other aspects of it that I don’t like as well, but I won’t go into all the messy details here.  But if you have the time, feel free to “Google” it, to see what I mean.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
