Pay no attention to the man in the above quote!  It is President Chester A. Arthur, not William Arthur Ward.  Below is a photo – hopefully – of Billy Artie Ward!      YUR

THE  PESSIMIST  COMPLAINS  ABOUT  THE  WIND;  THE  OPTIMIST  EXPECTS  IT  TO  CHANGE;  THE  REALIST  ADJUSTS  THE  SAILS.”   —   WILLIAM ARTHUR  WARD

(Both quotes puts me in mind of the folks who complain about those “son of a bitch” athletes who take a knee during the playing of the National Anthem.  Despite the greatness, and the “goodness”,  of the United States of America, there IS definitely a major problem with institutionalized racism in this country.  It won’t go away by wishing it away.  And, political correctness really just sweeps things under the rug.  Oh, no.  Let’s not talk about it.  Let’s just mask it behind banning words, and coming up with “acceptable alternatives”, like “the N-word”.  That will fix everything!  No, folks.  We have to be willing to talk about it, as adults, not as over-protected toddlers.  And, actually work for the necessary change.  Just like Alcoholics Anonymous tells us:  the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.  Let’s sober up, and get to work.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  CLOCKED IN

(Uh oh!  Was Colin over-served last night???  Those dastardly pub keepers!  There is no personal responsibility these days, folks.  Our overly litigious society has found a way to always find someone else to blame.  Listen!  I do NOT have a drinking problem.  I drink.  I get drunk.  I fall down.  No problem!

We were treated to all old favorite clue words today.  However, all four jumbles came up as new.  I actually had to skip “posli” and come back to it, after the three other jumbles!  I fell prey to the two syllable jumble for a one syllable word ploy.  Curse you, Hoyt!  LOL!  The answer letter layout was another dandy of a jumble.  Nothing given away.  The cartoon – once again – reinforces our American ignorance about the Tower of Big Ben.  Big Ben is the bell, not the clock.  But, who cares, you Limey bastards?!?!  We’re Americans, and we do, and think, what we want!  So, there!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
