Common sense and education are highly compatible; in fact, neither is worth much without the other.”   —   Donald G. Smith

(It’s always good to have a healthy balance of the two.  But, if you’re forced to go with one over the other, I’ll always side with common sense.  I’ve seen some very “educated” people make some really stupid mistakes!  And, some of them have trouble making run of the mill, logical leaps.  They have to map everything out.  It can be very frustrating dealing with people like that.  There seems to be a number of Donald G. Smiths out there!  There are a few who are very successful businessmen, and at least one of them is a philanthropist.  I always feel a little funny when I can’t give proper attribution.  I’m going to guess that it’s this guy!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I’m pretty sure the guys create these a little further in advance, but it’s still kind of funny that I recently opined that most men with beards – and no mustache – look a little odd to me, with the rare exception of Abraham Lincoln!  Lo and behold, the guys gave us good old Abe, with a mistaken mustache today.  The mustache is almost an after thought for today’s gag.  There could have been a number of other errors that needed an order of immediate correction.  LOL!

All old favorite clue words today, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve seen “rahhs” before.  I thought both “ahobip” and “cebmeo” were great jumbles.  They both took a couple of looks.  The answer letter layout was a nifty jumble too.  Nothing obvious about it.  And, another masterful cartoon.  That is one great Gutzon Borglum!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
