In wilderness I sense the miracle of life, and behind it our scientific accomplishments fade to trivia.”   —   Charles Lindbergh

(It’s certainly tough topping wilderness.  But, today’s scientific accomplishments are far from trivial.  So much has happened since the last quarter of the 20th Century, that it would make Lucky Lindy’s head spin.  Our natural wonders are still number one though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  LESSEN PLAN

(Clever pun!  It took me a couple of minutes to get this one.  For some reason, I was reading the end of the clue/question as THE, instead of A.  That threw me a little.  So, at first I suspected that the second word was LESS, but I couldn’t do anything with PLNEAN.  But, I was able to see the word PLAN in it.  And, then I saw the light.  No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  The one for “lunacy” stumped me for a minute.  The answer letter layout was a slendiforous jumble.  It certainly didn’t help me out any.  The cartoon was kind of your standard elementary classroom fare, but it got the job done.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
