(Ah!  Legislating tolerance.  Good luck with that!  Human nature is . . . what it is.  Intellectually, we all – should – strive for mutual acceptance, but we are such emotional creatures, with just so much history . . . and tradition to overcome.  Hopefully, we’ll all get there . . . eventually.  I just don’t put too much stock into political correctness and banning language.  Those are symptomatic treatments only.  We need to do more to address the underlying causes:  fear and ignorance.  Genetically, we are like 99.95 to 99.96% alike, racially.  Why go crazy over 0.4 to 0.5%?  Life is too short, and all we have is each other.  I will now step off of the bully pulpit and talk about the merits of today’s Jumble!  Who said:  “Thank God!” ???  😉

All of today’s jumbling was new, to me, and fairly challenging.  Nothing I had to write out, or back into, but good stuff.  I can’t remember when we last saw “gentry”.  Both “token” and “douse” come up occasionally.  But, we have a new word in “tirade”.  You guys might be used to my frequent tirades, by now, but we’ve never had it as a clue word before.  So, our friend, ralis95, will have to update his clue word database!  The answer letter layout was nicely cryptic.  No giveaways.  The answer makes for a good pun.  And, the cartoon was a lot of fun.  A fine Jumble, indeed.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(This is perhaps the sweetest and truest quote I’ve ever had the pleasure of decoding.  We shouldn’t even try to do it all on our own.  We all need to help each other, and allow ourselves to be helped.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
