Respect for the truth comes close to being the basis for all morality.”   —   Frank Herbert

(I certainly can’t disagree with this!  I think the biggest problem is that too many people can’t see – or refuse to see – “the truth”.  Because “the truth” is not always pretty.  And, truth can, unfortunately, be quite subjective.  There is a saying that goes:  One man’s truth is another man’s lie/fiction.  But, I still like Frank’s quote.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  KNEAD TO KNOW

(Doh!  I can’t really say stinky when it comes to fresh-baked bread, now can I!  I guess it’s just more of a homophonic pun.  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  I can vouch that we have definitely seen “yonwah” before.  Did you know that the singular “kudo” is technically incorrect, but is now considered “acceptable” in today’s English?  The answer letter layout was a marvelous jumble.  Despite ending in NOW, I don’t think it gave anything away.  It reads more as now . . . anyhow.  The cartoon was fun!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
