A man who is not a liberal at sixteen has no heart; a man who is not a conservative at sixty has no head.”   —   Disraeli

(Riiight.  Clearly, he said this as an old man, and head of the Conservative Party.  And, maybe things were a little different in the 1800s.  Today, there are more and more shades of gray.  We need to get away from silly labels anyway.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS

(A dominating sports pun!  We are quickly approaching March Madness, folks.  Be prepared for a few more basketball puns in the next few weeks.  ‘Tis the season, and stuff like that.  A lot of your regular TV shows will be pre-empted for games, and the competing networks will most likely air reruns.  

All six of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  I thought maybe “opaque” might be new, but no.  Surprisingly, all of today’s jumbles appear to be new.  Nice job, Hoyt!  The answer letter layout was a splendid sixteen letter jumble.  If you didn’t pick up on the clue/question you might have struggled to get this final answer.

Great cartoon of a school yard hoops game!  I like how the big guy’s tongue is sticking out, a la Michael Jordan.  And, I hope you guys picked up on Jeff’s little tribute to Kobe Bryant, by having one kid in a number 8 jersey, and another in a number 24 jersey.  Nice going, brother!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
