The details vanish in the bird’s-eye view, but so does the bird’s-eye view vanish in the details.”   —   William James

(It’s kinda like with pointillism, or the pixels on a television screen.  Too close and all you see are dots, but no picture.  Too far and all you see is the picture, but no dots.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  NO FOOLING

(Editors are NO FUN!  I saw a good April Fools joke online this morning, and one on television.  No new clue words today, but it looks like all the jumbles are new.  The answer letter layout was very good, and the cartoon was a lot of fun too.  Always a pleasure to see our two boys in action!   Be well and do good, friends.  Enjoy, or at least tolerate, the April Fools jokes!)   —   YUR

PS. I don’t understand much of what Zemanta is providing, and WordPress’ insistence on changing some things that don’t need changing.  I also object to Getty buying up all the photographic content on the internet.  It’s not right.     YUR
