Answer:  REVOLUTIONARY

(My paper doesn’t carry the strip, but I think it’s still a going concern.  I know Johnny Hart died a while back, but I think his kid or grandkid, is running with it still.  I think he also did the Wizard of Id.  I’ve always been a big fan of the funny pages!

No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “latyl” before.  At first I was very impressed by the 13-letter answer letter layout, and the answer being just the one 13-letter word.  But, after looking at the cartoon, and the clue/question, the answer became pretty obvious, to me.  What are the three round things below the cave painting in the background?  Is this supposed to be a primitive TV, a la The Flintstones?  That Jeff is such a kidder.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I know I’m small but I’m also big.  I’m big because I’m connected to the universe, and the universe is connected to me.”   —   Neil deGrasse Tyson

(I just KNEW this was part of a larger quote!  My man, Tyson, LOVES to talk!  LOL!  I think some of it is because Neil loves to hear himself talk.  The other part though is that he loves to impart his knowledge upon others.  And, that is the part for which I’m grateful for.  Smart people are very entertaining.  Especially, well rounded smart people.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It Blogs the Mind

Dig this, boys and girls! Our buddy, Wes, is going through a *What’s the point of this blogging biz?* phase, and could use some more feedback. He lists HIS favorite blogs, and wouldn’t you know that Unclerave’s Wordy Weblog got TOP BILLING! But of course! I’m the Candy Man of blogging! LOL! Give my pal a read, and then either agree with him, or argue with him. He’s open to both praise and criticism. — YUR

Conversations Across the World
& the Comfort of Fellow Bloggers

No wonder blogging is on its way out; it’s something I do. No surprise that yet another little pleasure of mine is about to be retired; it’s happened before. Till then though, let me partake with some of my fellow travelers on this mostly thankless endeavor.
I’ve known none of them in person, enjoying their company from afar: they sit at their desks in faraway lands and I don’t even get up to greet them. Ah, the cyberage: sharing most inner feelings but not our own collective breath. But I digress.
Blogging is a necessity to some, an escape valve to others. An open line with the world or a rescue rope amid inclement waves. It’s all but a hobby, or it wouldn’t last. More like distant voices that ebb and flow and add their own colors to an increasingly grey and…

Untold Stories

Anson Gorbel was feeling the tension rise within himself as time drew near for the implementation of this coming military strike against the valley farm in order to seize the special new signal directive technology. He had felt a renewed confidence at the outset of preparations for this mission but felt a certain unease now. There had been a message sent to Anson earlier that day telling him that his partner the former Russian agent Egor Vrolev had recovered much quicker than expected and was moving around the base. Gorbel had chosen to have all three drones sent from that same base situated in what used to be the southern states in order to maintain the greatest element of surprise. The situation room screen came to life with an image of a rather pale Egor Vrolev still in his underwear sporting a big smile.

“Hey boss hows it going with you”?…
