I’m not concerned with your liking or disliking me . . . all I ask is that you respect me as a human being.”   —   Jackie Robinson

(Was that really asking too much?  Apparently, for some it was.  And, unfortunately, for some it still is.  There are plenty of different colors of people out there.  We all taste the same, folks.  Trust me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  JET LEGGED

(This pun could even replace the term jet laggedAirline collusion???  Who’d a thunk it???  We’re kind of a captive audience though . . . and the airlines know it.  Why did our government allow all those mergers?  $$$  They definitely weren’t in the consumers’ best interest.  Less choice always means higher prices.  It’s kinda difficult to boycott all the airlines . . . and that’s why they know it.  Maybe we just need to be very selective which airlines we DO fly on, and let American, Delta, Southwest and United know exactly why we’re not flying with them.  Maybe then they’ll remove a couple of rows of seats, so passengers can get some saner legroom.  I don’t have a big beef with the seat widths, because collectively we HAVE all gotten a little too wide.  Maybe, they’ll even do away with some of the ridiculous nickle and diming.  Hey!  We can dream, can’t we?

There seems to be a new clue word today, although it seems fairly familiar, in “legend”.  I’ve got the latest and greatest version of the ralis95 clue word database yet, and it’s not there.  Got it on the Fourth of July!  I guess ralis95 will need to add it to his clue word database.  The three other jumbles seem to be new as well.  The answer letter layout was another great jumble.  And, Jeff’s cartoon does a fine job of illustrating the literal way we’re all being squeezed.  The airlines have done a good job of cowing us.  Maybe some of us will actually do something about it.  Like I said above:  We can dream, can’t we?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
