(Ah!  Legislating tolerance.  Good luck with that!  Human nature is . . . what it is.  Intellectually, we all – should – strive for mutual acceptance, but we are such emotional creatures, with just so much history . . . and tradition to overcome.  Hopefully, we’ll all get there . . . eventually.  I just don’t put too much stock into political correctness and banning language.  Those are symptomatic treatments only.  We need to do more to address the underlying causes:  fear and ignorance.  Genetically, we are like 99.95 to 99.96% alike, racially.  Why go crazy over 0.4 to 0.5%?  Life is too short, and all we have is each other.  I will now step off of the bully pulpit and talk about the merits of today’s Jumble!  Who said:  “Thank God!” ???  😉

All of today’s jumbling was new, to me, and fairly challenging.  Nothing I had to write out, or back into, but good stuff.  I can’t remember when we last saw “gentry”.  Both “token” and “douse” come up occasionally.  But, we have a new word in “tirade”.  You guys might be used to my frequent tirades, by now, but we’ve never had it as a clue word before.  So, our friend, ralis95, will have to update his clue word database!  The answer letter layout was nicely cryptic.  No giveaways.  The answer makes for a good pun.  And, the cartoon was a lot of fun.  A fine Jumble, indeed.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
