We’ve let the blade of our innocence dull over time, and it’s only in innocence that you find any kind of magic, any kind of courage.”   —   Sean Penn

(I’ve never heard “innocence” described as any kind of knife or sword before.  It’s definitely a thin and delicate thing.  Sean is his own man.  I think he just tries a little too hard sometimes.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(If the lute had been invented by Italian-Americans the answer might be ABSO-FF’N-LUTELY.  Bada-bing bada-boom!  Ah, fuhgeddaboutit!  Hey, we have a new clue word today, in “vinyl”!  Ralis95 can add another one to his world famous clue word database.  It looks like all the jumbles are new today.  It took me a few seconds to see “actual”, so for me that was the best of the jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a fantastic jumble.  I’d say that it didn’t give anything away.  Period cartoons are always a favorite of mine.  This is more likely the Renaissance period, and not the Middle Ages, but I wanted to go with some alliteration.  Does my love for puns and alliteration mean make me a weak-minded person?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
