Answer:  TAXING

(Quite!  A very date appropriate stinky pun.  No one likes doing them, with the exception of CPAs, but they have to be done.  And, we all gotta pay if we expect to live in a country with public roads, public schools, police and fire departments, health research and food safety, national parks, energy and environmental initiatives, Medicare and Veterans benefits, and of course a strong military.  Just how much should go to what, and who should bear the brunt of the tax burden, are always bones of contention.  We like to think we have a say in the matter, but for the most part we’re at the mercy of special interests.

There are no new clue words today.  However, three of the jumbles appear to be new, with only “kneat” having definitely been used before.  They were all fine jumbles.  The answer letter layout was another fine six letter jumble.  All the verbal and visual clues made solving this facile . . . the opposite of taxing.

Super cartoon!  It looks like Jeff and Kathy are doing it old school, with a printing calculator, and the actual paper IRS – and state – forms.  The stacks of receipts and the little bottle of white out are a nice touch.  And, both of them look so bedraggled and haggard.  C’mon, Jeff!  Spend the $50 and switch to e-filing!  LOL!  But of course, that would make for a much less dramatic cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  It’s also Jackie Robinson Day!  So, enjoy a few innings of a ballgame!   —   YUR

    This SCRAMBLE EXUDEd a sense and sort of taste of a JIGSAW Puzzle put together in a leisurely manner on a vacation spot ISLAND.
    After completion, this classy project was TAKEN and posted on a lovely palm tree.
    May many good things happen to you folks!

    PS Let us sports fans also remember the
    second African-American (first player in the
    American League) to play in Major League
    Baseball, Larry Dobie. Maybe the most un-
    appreciated player in USA Major Sports.
    Mr. Dobie played for the Bill Veck owned
    Cleveland Indians. He was not only a very
    good outfielder but a Class Act… ☆
    (He passed in 2013)

    I don’t know if it’s because Jackie was THE very first one to be allowed in the Major Leagues, or what. I do know that Larry and a few others followed just a few months later, and they likely faced a ton of bigotry too. Maybe not as much as Jackie, but I’m sure they faced their share. It likely had something to do with Jackie getting involved with the civil rights movement, as much as he did. Maybe the others didn’t. But, I agree that Larry, and the others deserve their due, Ken.
