Answer:  BONE OF CONTENTION

(Dig it!  Very cool.  I’ve always been fascinated by archeology.  Someone told me – a very long time ago – that everything worth finding had already been found!  And, I was naive enough to believe them.  I can be such a dope!  I don’t remember who, but I’ve had a tendency to let some people effect me negatively, like this.  Ah!  That’s my cross to bear. 

There were no new clue words today, but four of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve seen both “fonedf” and “velove” before.  The answer letter layout was a great jumble, but the entire setup made the answer fairly obvious to me.  The cartoon is wonderful.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Someday I hope to write a book where the royalties will pay for the copies I give away.”   —   Clarence Darrow

(Having a sense of humor about yourself is essential to every artist, of every artform.  Be well and do good, my friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I now realize that “artform” is NOT a recognized compound word, but I’m astounded by this fact.  To my way of thinking, this is a perfect candidate to be a compound word, and it’s almost mind boggling that it isn’t!     YUR
