Answer:  JUMPED AT IT

(Good ol’ Evel was essentially the 20th Century P. T. Barnum.  Plenty of hype and bombast, but he was a dedicated showman!  I think the guy profited from his – many – failures, more than his successes.  Allegedly, he broke every bone in his body, some more than once!  As a kid, growing up in the ’60s and ’70s, he was revered as kind of a rebel, or anti-hero.  He was always doing – or at least trying to do – what he was told couldn’t be done.  And, I can’t be certain of this, but I think that he had an influence on Elvis Presley’s later years.  They both loved Las Vegas, and they both wore those flashy jumpsuits, with capes and crazy belt buckles!  LOL!

Yes, we’ve seen all of today’s clue words before.  Two of the jumbles are coming up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “segsu” and “numdo” previously.  I guess you’d say there was nothing petite about any mound that Evel launched from.  More than once he ended up like a jigsaw puzzle . . . with a coupla pieces gone!  Thank you, Jim Croce!  The answer letter layout was a tensible ten letter jumble.  Cryptic enough.  Knowing what Evel was known for, and the final answer slots layout, made for a quick solve though.

Great cartoon of America’s favorite stuntman, on his Harley!  Not sure who the suit is.  Maybe a young Geraldo Rivera?  I guess it really doesn’t matter.  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Alice Walker - Freedom From Religion Foundation

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”   —   Alice Walker

(And, that is exactly what the bastards want us to think!  That we don’t have any power.  We can either allow SCOTUS to weaken the Voting rights Act, undo Roe v. Wade, and possibly Gay Marriage – and maybe even Interracial Marriage – or we can fight back and elect the people who will codify these rights into law.  Then maybe we can overturn the abomination of Citizens United too!  If you’re not already registered to vote, do it as soon as possible.  And, then vote!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
