Answer:  DRAINING

(Ba-dum-bum!  Oh, yeah.  That’s a stinky pun!  Would you believe that we have a new clue word today?  Yes, “flunk” can be added to the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  It will soon come right after fluke and before flunky.  All of today’s jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  It did not give the answer away.  The cartoon was . . . slick.  It did a great job of setting up the double meaning.  PT is a little draining for me.  I think I’ll take a little nap.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I guess you might call them The Three Ds of Democracy!  There are similarities between debate and discussion, although with discussion there is probably a higher level of agreement.  And, hopefully, an openness and/or transparency of what is being discussed.  Debate is more a give and take, of generally differing opinions.  Sometimes they are civil, and other times not so much.  But, they help to give us options.  Dissent is always a little dicier.   Dissent is opinion – very often expressed through protest – of opposition to official government policy.  For a society to be free it has to allow for this kind of public criticism.  Very often it takes dissent to wake people up, so there can be debates, and hopefully constructive discussion.  That is how change is affected.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
