Answer:  NEVERENDING

(Versus the students’ attention span . . . which appears to be non-existent.  If you want something done right, with dedication and dependability, hire someone over 40.  If you want something done cheaply, by someone who really doesn’t give a crap, hire someone fresh out of school.  Are there exceptions to the rule?  Sure.  But, do you really want to take the chance?

No new clue words today, but two of the jumbles came up as new.  I really liked the one for “benign”.  I never get excited by any UN words.  They’re kinda cheap, in my book.  The answer letter layout was great.  The biggest clue was was the kid complaining:  “This is going on forever.”  Fun cartoon.  I find the concept of infinity to be fascinating.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive.  One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.”   —   Eleanor Roosevelt

(I love the very purposeful association of curiosity to life!  Without curiosity – with just accepting all you are told – you are merely existing.  Don’t ever be afraid to question things.  Don’t be afraid to live.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
