Curtain Raiser

Our over-militarized police forces need to be reformed! It will likely take some defunding, and converting to more community based law enforcement organizations. This won’t happen overnight, but it has to happen! And, it has to happen in conjunction with reforming our court system, and prison systems. Private prisons are an abomination. No one should profit off the incarceration of others. These are all major aspects of America’s systemic racism. We can no longer turn a blind eye to these injustices. It’s way past time that we live up to the convictions of our Declaration of Independence, and show that we all truly believe that : “ALL men are created equal.” — YUR

Stop the U.S. of Lyncherdom, Colltalers

Get your knees off our necks.‘ The eloquence of Rev. Al Sharpton’s eulogy of George Floyd, choked to death by a white Minneapolis police officer on Memorial Day, was appropriate to match the public horror about his death. Hundreds of thousands across the U.S. and the world marched in protest.
The massive 11-day rallies are not only a response to the horrifying 8:46min video of Floyd’s killing but also a demand for change, redress, renewal of our tenets as human beings. Not surprisingly, the police behaved badly all along, arresting and beating people up. So now there’s talk of defunding it.
The crowd also paid respects to Breonna Taylor, whose 27th birthday was Friday, and countless of young black lives cut short by police brutality and cruel social inequality now reigning in the U.S. Breonna, an African-American medical technician, was shot by police…

Clue/Question:  The arm wrestling match held everyone’s attention because it was – – –

arm wrestling stock photos - OFFSET

Answer:  GRIPPING

(Apparently . . . squeezing your opponent’s hand is – somehow – considered cheating!  I never possessed great arm strength, but I did – past tense – have strong hands.  One guy, who was stronger than me, said I was “cheating” by squeezing his hand so hard.  I always figured:  All’s fair!  Does anyone know if it’s actually some kind of foul???

No new clue words today!  However, all of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  A little strange seeing three jumbles starting with P.  But, I was able to get all of the clue words immediately this morning.  The answer letter layout was a great eight letter jumble.  But, I thought the final answer was far from intriguing.

Fun arm wrestling cartoon.  It looks like “Stick” is holding his own!  Came a time when I was called a “Stick”.  More of a “Chunk”, as I got older.  I’m kind of in between now.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
