(Not bad!  No new clue words today, but the jumbling of these four old friends was inventive.  I didn’t struggle with any of them, but I really liked “scour” and “emblem”.  The answer letter layout was just okay.  I think switching “scour” for “stunt”, and “waiter” for “emblem” might have made things a little more challenging.  But, that’s just me.  I must be in one of my moods.  The cartoon, and its dialog, set up the pun perfectly.  I wonder if the corner of Cameron and Argyle actually exists, or if Jeff just pulled those names out of thin air?  That’s about it for today, friends.  Please, be well, and remember to at least try to do good.)   —   YUR

I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.”   —   Mahatma Gandhi

(Unfortunately, I think the pendulum has swung back more towards muscles.  It’s subtler today, though.  Political correctness, public kangaroo courts, and the corporate media telling us what they want us to know and just how to think.  “Conform or be cast out.”  It would likely make poor Gandhi’s head spin.  But, if he were still with us today, he would tell us to fight it . . . by thinking for ourselves.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
