History teaches us that men and nations behave wisely once they have exhausted all other alternatives.”   —   Abba Eban

(Well . . . you don’t expect the other guy to just give you his oil, gas and mineral rights!  Do you???  It’s much easier to just go in on some trumped up pretext, guns blazing, and take what you want.  Then you can extend your military industrial complex profits, with a prolonged occupation.  That will disenfranchise and alienate more young men, to join more and more “terrorist” organizations, and you can perpetuate the militaristic cycle of profit for the few, at the expense of the many.  Maybe, they’ll behave more wisely after they have exhausted all the resources?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(What???  Two weeks is NOT enough time to edit a cartoon???  Who’s playing today, people?  That’s right, the Carolina Panthers and . . . the Denver Broncos!  NOT that banged up bunch of also rans, coached by the illegitimate, morose son of Al Davis.  LOL!  Nothing scared me more, and pleased me more, than the AFC Championship game of two weeks ago.  Especially after last year’s Super Bowl debacle.  Who even thinks to throw the ball on second and goal from the one yard line, when you have the best power back in the league?!  It was beyond stupid.  It was – beyond a shadow of a doubtTHE biggest gaffe in Super Bowl history.  Worse than Jackie Smith dropping that pass, that hit him in the numbers, while falling to his butt in the end zone.  Even worse than Scott Norwood‘s wide right field goal miss.  Arrogance and ego are two of the greatest ills of human existence, because they have a funny way of biting you in the butt.  Pete Carroll had to learn that the hard way.

There were no new clue words today, but four of the jumbles came up as new.  The guys have definitely used both “dunsed” and “leronl” sometime in the past.  I liked all the jumbles though.  The answer letter layout maybe could have been better, but I’m not exactly sure how.  You just knew the first word had to be either AT or IN, based on the lead in of the clue/question.  I guess AN was an option too, but it would have been too obvious, seeing that it was right there in the answer letter layout.  Hoyt wouldn’t do that.  The quotation marks and the hyphen, and Jeff’s – delusional – celebration were the biggest clues!

I really don’t have a favorite going into today’s Big Show.  I don’t hate either team . . . for me to have someone to root against.  No questionable, or dirty, players or coaches.   And, I like both of the QBs.  Based on their records, and the outcomes of their respective Championship games, the Panthers are the clear favorites.  But, Peyton is the sentimental favorite.  The charismatic, aging gunslinger, with probably his last chance to get his second ring, makes for a nice Hollywood movie-style ending.  All we really want is that the game is competitive.  Lop-sided games take all the fun out of the Super Bowl hype.  Let’s hope for that, no serious injuries, a few clever commercials, and an entertaining – Cold Play – halftime show!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
