Answer:  UNWILLING

(Ooh!  That is one stinky pun!    No new clue words today, however three of the jumbles came up as new.  We have seen “gamie” before.  The jumbles were good, but none of them tripped me up any.  Gotta love “dogini” though!  The answer letter layout was good, but not great.  It wasn’t super obvious, but I got the answer right away.  Cute cartoon.  It certainly tells the story!  Oh, yeah.  Happy Groundhog’s Day!  What a load of crap event this is!  And, people want to debate doing away with the coin toss for football overtime???  Oh, well.  Be well . . . be happy with what you get . . . and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Someone who reads my local newspaper, The Journal News, complained that the Sunday, 01/31/16, Jumble contained an inaccuracy.  The equation on the blackboard was for Einstein’s theory of “special relativity”, and not “general relativity”!  The correct equation would be:  \[ R_{\mu \nu } - \frac{1}{2}Rg_{\mu \nu } = \frac{G_ N}{8 \pi c^4}T_{\mu \nu }. \]  At least I think that’s the right one.  Any physicists out there???  LOL!   —   YUR

    Yup. Everything was instant for me too today.

    Not for me. Didn’t have time to spend on today’s puzzle, so I was counting on instant recognition. Only IMAGE came up for me right away and nothing else. Not even picking it up here and there later could get any other words, so today wasn’t my day.
