We are inclined to believe those whom we do not know because they have never deceived us.”   —   Samuel Johnson

(I guess it’s either that, or we don’t believe . . . anyone!  Lots of deception is designed to protect us though.  Some of our more delicate psyches can’t handle the truth.  Shame.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  ROAD TO RECOVERY

(You really kinda need the cartoon, with its dialog, to easily get this answer.  Without that, I can see people struggling to come up with the answer.  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  I stumbled a bit, again, on “cohurs”.  I started writing SCOUR before realizing I’d have an extra letter.  I got a kick out of “dogpaa”, as it reminded me that DOG is GOD spelled backwards.  In looking to see if “volume” was on the ralis95 clue word database, I started to wonder why it’s not spelled like VACUUM.  Or, vice versa.  And, I’d like to think that “doyici” is Russian for “idiocy” – Is doyici! – just because I’m a little out there.  The answer letter layout was a brilliant jumble.  So sayeth yer Uncle!  The cartoon does a great job of showing people pulling over for an ambulance.  Too many people don’t seem to know enough to do this nowadays!  I like how Jeff spelled it backwards on the hood of the ambulance.  Great Sunday Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
