Answer:  OUTSPOKEN

(As American as apple pie!  There have been plenty of changes in baseball over the years, but, fundamentally, it’s still the same game.  Nearly as iconic as baseball is the Jumble.  It’s been around since 1954.  Even longer than yer Uncle!  If we lose net neutrality, and corporations continue to privatize content, yer Uncle is going to have to hang up his keyboard and call it a day.  The first 12 pictures provided by Zemanta all read:  Getty  – by embedding this image, you consent to Getty Images‘ Terms of Use.  I don’t have the time for BS legalese, and I don’t have the resources to worry about whether they’re going to come after me.  There are various petitions out there to “Save Net Neutrality“.  At the bottom of this comment I’ll be posting a couple of the links for those of you who would like to take action on this issue.  It’s an important issue, that eventually will effect all of us.  Check them out, folks.

There were no new clue words today, though all of the jumbles appear to be new.  The answer letter layout was another great jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  The cartoon is classic Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
