(Our first Marcus Garvey quotation, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  And, it is a great truism.  While there is a current push for improving our math and science knowledge in this country, we should not excel at these at the expense of the humanities.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  BIRD’S-EYE VIEW

(It looks like Foghorn Leghorn ended up T-boning Big Bird at the intersection.  I wonder just who forgot to yield the right of way.  Hopefully, Ms. Hawk will be able to sort everything out.  Do you think we might be looking down on Sesame StreetI say . . . er, I say . . . Foghorn looks a little out of his element!  He’s a rural kind of feller.  He’s not used to such high tech things . . . as stop signs.  But, knowing him, I’m willing to bet that he can convince Big Bird that he was in the wrong!  Ah blew mah horn, boy!  Didn’t ya heah me blow mah horn?!?!  LOL!

No new clue words today.  But, all but “drift” were new jumblings!  And, the answer letter layout was another wonderful jumble.  It was beautifully cryptic.  I don’t think too many of you struggled to get the answer though.  It was pretty obvious.  But, the cartoon made the whole gag worthwhile.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
