Answer:  IN PRINCIPLE

(A great homophonic pun!  Those are two of the English words that are very confusing.  As we’ve seen, there are the two spellings, but there are three different meanings, with two of them being of the “al” spelling.  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  The answer letter layout is nicely cryptic, and I think this Jumble may have been a little tough for some to figure out, right away.  Not as big a gimme as some of the other recent ones, at least.  The cartoon does a great job of showing why she regrets her decision.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Joan Jett

I just feel like I’m living my life and doing what I want to do.  Sometimes people call that rebellion, especially when you’re a woman.”   —   Joan Jett

(Joan broke into Rock music, as part of a girl band, when there was no such thing as a female Rock band.  The Runaways were real ground breakers.  They might not have been a major success, in the U.S., but they opened things up for later female bands.  And, of course, she went on to bigger things with Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, and solo work.  If you check the jukebox in just about any bar in the country you’ll no doubt find the Rock anthem “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll“.  The song will always kick butt.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
