English: The US Navy attack submarine USS Annapolis (SSN 760) rests in the Arctic Ocean after surfacing through three feet of ice during Ice Exercise 2009 on March 21, 2009. The two-week training exercise, which is used to test submarine operability and war-fighting capability in Arctic conditions, also involved the USS Helena (SSN 725), the University of Washington and personnel from the Navy Arctic Submarine Laboratory.

(Because, I can’t do a joke about anchors aweigh if they don’t!  Not the best pun, but it will do.  They do mainly operate under water.  None of the clue words are new today, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  None of them stumped me today.  The answer letter layout was probably the best jumble of the day.  The cartoon was fun.  It’s been a while since we’ve had one with the classic sinking sailboat!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The only real prison is fear, and the only real freedom is freedom from fear.”   —   Aung San Suu Kyi

(To me, today’s quote is even more appropriate to America’s Independence Day than yesterday’s. 

I’m patting myself on the back this morning, because despite the missing letters I was able to complete the author’s name correctly.  The name rang familiar, and when I Googled her I saw why.  She is a very prominent stateswoman in Myanmar, and the daughter of the Father of the Nation, Aung San. 

A lot of us believe that so many of these “terrorist” attacks, that we hear about, on an almost daily basis, are actually coordinated by our own leaders.  Why?  To perpetuate the very profitable – for some – “War on Terror”, and to instill/maintain a sense of fear among the citizenry.  A fearful citizenry is a compliant citizenry.  They are much easier to control.  It’s a form of tyranny, and we must not allow it.  Many people, who want to think the best of their countries/leaders, will simply write this off as wild haired conspiracy.  And, that’s okay.  I can live with that.  It comes with the territory.  But, some will take this to heart.  They’ll  think about it.  Maybe research it.  That’s all any ordinary fellow can ask.  Be well . . . be brave, and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
