(This brings up an interesting question.  Should anyone feel compelled to forgive, when there has been no apology, and/or no explanation, for the hurtful offense?  For me, asking for forgiveness is essentially the same as an apology.  So, without dragging religious beliefs and ideology into the issue, isn’t there a reasonable expectation of an apology, and hopefully an explanation, prior to the act of forgiveness?  If you diagram it as a process, it usually goes:  Offense -> Hurt -> Apology/Explanation -> Forgiveness.  So, why would the offender expect/deserve forgiveness without fulfilling the third step of the process?  As a rational being, shouldn’t the offended have the right to understand what they are forgiving?  Don’t worry folks.  This is not about me.  But, it is about someone who is very close to me.  Some have been pushing my friend, for a kind of blanket, open forgiveness, while others are adherents of the process.  Thoughts?  Be well and do good, my friends.)   —   YUR

(I don’t know about the rest of you, but this one took me a little time to figure out.  There were no new clue words today, however all the jumbles – but the one for “ankle” – were new.  The answer letter layout was the real work of art today.  It was a fantastic jumble that gave away nothing.  At least not to me.  I figured the second word probably ended in ED, but other than that I had nothing, for a while.  The cartoon is cute.  I like the name of their shop.  A great send up to a well-known 70s-80s metal band, Twisted Sister.  Maybe Jeff is friends with Dee Snider!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
