Answer:  STEER CLEAR

(“Male cow” is kind of an oxymoron, but I think most of us knew what the boys were getting at.  They couldn’t very well say bull, when it’s a steer, and clearly they couldn’t say steer!  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  I struggled a bit with “hereby”.  Probably because it is a compound word.  The answer letter layout was also a very fine jumble.  I don’t think there was anything obvious about it.  The cartoon was a lot of fun.  Maybe not for the steer but . . . Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I think a lot of people – at least subconsciously – try to remain relatively “uninformed”, because the more you know of what’s really going on in the world, the more there is to worry about.  Try to find a healthy balance, folks.  I’m not saying that this is an easy thing to achieve, but try not to be oblivious to what is really going on in the world.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
