It is a sin to believe evil of others, but it is seldom a mistake.”   —   H. L. Mencken

(Never really cared much for the concepts of “sin” or “evil”.  Simplistic terms, designed to keep simple minds in line.  I’d like to think that mankind has moved on – dare I say evolved – to more rational ways of viewing the world.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  FALL FAST ASLEEP

(Not bad.  No new clue words, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  Even so, I saw them all immediately.  The answer letter layout was a masterful jumble!  I was looking for a tougher answer, but then the Fs and As set me on the simpler path.  Brilliant cartoon though!  I really liked the dog sleeping on the parachute, at the foot of the bed.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  WEIGHT AND SEE

(Nice pun.  All of the clue words were old favorites, but only “cadye” has been used as a jumble before.  The other three appear to be new.  The answer letter layout was superlative!  A first class, super jumble!  The cartoon is another Jeff Knurek masterpiece.  The parents seem to be eating Vienna sausages!  Ah-nold is Austrian!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
