Should Walt Whitman Be #Cancelled? | JSTOR Daily

I am as bad as the worst, but thank God, I am as good as the best.”   —   Walt Whitman

(Realizing that we all are a mixture of good and bad is both humbling and reassuring.  Not counting the narcissists and sociopaths, of course.  Unfortunately, it appears that these two personality disorders are increasing in modern society.  We just need to recognize them for what they are, before we go electing them to public office.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DOING WELL

(A very masculine, suggestive, stinky pun.  Or, maybe it’s just me.  You guys know how I’m in touch with my feminine, tree-hugging side.  Plus, I’m just getting cranky AF in my old age!  Ask yer kiddies what AF means.

No new clue words today.  ralis95 is hunkered down today, in the air conditioning, sipping whatever damn cocktail he pleases!  It’s 97° where he be, heading to 99!  But, of course it’s a dry heat.  Yeah, right.  When it’s that hot it is just friggin’ hot.  However, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  The answer letter layout is a fine nine letter jumble.  At first, it made me think that the second word might be DOWN.  But, I couldn’t do a thing with ILGLE.

Fine construction themed cartoon.  Is drilling considered construction?  Once you’ve gotten to what you were drilling for you’d have to build the rig.  So, I guess, indirectly, drilling could be considered construction.  Lot’s of stories out there of how nature is benefiting from our pandemic lock-down.  Too bad it’s probably just a temporary respite.  The earth deserves a break.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
