If you wish to heal your sadness or anger, seek to heal the sadness or anger of others.”   —   Ana Castillo

(This appears to be our first quote from Ms. Castillo.  Hopefully, we’ll be seeing more of her work.  I found this to be a fairly difficult solve.  “Heal”, “sadness” and “anger” all took me some time to arrive at, even with all the “E”s.  I usually hold off on writing in the “E”s until the very end, but I couldn’t afford to do that today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  STATE OF THE ART

(I’ve always thought that this phrase was largely hokum, and as it turns out it is largely unqualified, hyperbolic fluff.  This actually makes today’s Jumble answer a wonderful pun, because it tries to make something literal out of something that can’t really be quantified.  Good stuff!

There are no new clue words today, but two of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen both “whosn” and “pdata” before.  David’s answer letter layout was a marvelous jumble, that gave nothing away.  Jeff’s wonderful drawing of the sculpture, the cartoon’s dialog, and the clue/question, all made for this relatively easy solve.  Hopefully, some day I’ll visit the majestic 49th state of the United States of America.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
