Science is the best idea humans have ever had.  The more people who embrace that idea, the better.”   —   Bill Nye (The Science Guy)

(I wonder if they can trace back to the first person to employ the earliest forms of scientific method.  It couldn’t have been all that long ago, could it?  For those who like to accuse those of us who value science, as it being our religion, I say:  Knock yourselves out, chuckleheads!  I’ll take logic over magic any day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  BALKED

(I sure hope bases weren’t loaded!  Great baseball pun.  I’m not going to explain, it unless somebody asks for an explanation.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, with “dunro” and “curnbh”  having been used before.  The answer letter layout was as good as a six-letter one can be.  If you’re not a baseball fan you may have struggled to get this.  So nice having a full sized cartoon!  The all-star is appropriately blasé, and the owner is an old-school, stereotypical, rich cowboy.  Sorta like Gene Autry.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion.  If YOU want to be happy, practice compassion.”   —   Dalai Lama

(I think the Dalai Lama would tell us that we need to have compassion for our opponents/”enemies”, as well as those who agree with us.  None of us can afford to be ideologues.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
