CONTROVERSY, n.
A battle in which spittle or ink replaces the injurious cannon-ball and the inconsiderate bayonet.
In controversy with the facile tongue --
That bloodless warfare of the old and young --
So seek your adversary to engage
That on himself he shall exhaust his rage,
And, like a snake that's fastened to the ground,
With his own fangs inflict the fatal wound.
You ask me how this miracle is done?
Adopt his own opinions, one by one,
And taunt him to refute them; in his wrath
He'll sweep them pitilessly from his path.
Advance then gently all you wish to prove,
Each proposition prefaced with, "As you've
So well remarked," or, "As you wisely say,
And I cannot dispute," or, "By the way,
This view of it which, better far expressed,
Runs through your argument." Then leave the rest
To him, secure that he'll perform his trust
And prove your views intelligent and just.

Haz1558

It's blustery here as well, but no rain at the minute. The grid is going to be interesting. But I'm happy to have found the yw4. It's the rest that are going to be the problem!

Hello FranMag!

Another one apart from yw?
2:58 am
FMitch

No just that one, my message was slow.
2:58 am
Haz1558

I'm sure there'll be more turn up - this looks like a grid ripe with possibilities for weird words!
2:58 am
Atalante

FranMag

3:30 am
FMitch

Parisian fishing net...? Digs out thinking cap.
3:30 am
bundy

3:31 am
Haz1558

The jewellery shop has a look in as well. en6/30, si6/24, ri4/6

FranMag

ga6/33 is a great word too.
3:39 am
Haz1558

3:52 am
Haz1558

I didn't want to give too much away - maybe the clue should be padded out more but I thought a nudge was all that was needed.
3:54 am
FMitch

Would much rather have a clue that makes me think than be handed the word on a plate.
3:54 am
bundy

it was good enough for me haz - maybe ya should make it harder :D
3:55 am
FranMag

haz, i love your clues! they make me think.
3:56 am
Haz1558

Hey smiley HAPPY THANKSGIVING
9:01 am
Katydid0615

they don't say it to my face, but i've heard it said behind my back lots of times. then they watch every bite I eat and if I eat something they don't think I should they gossip about that too. I just ignore those people. My true friends don't do that, but it sure showed me who was a true friend and who wasn't.

10:35 am
Vicuna

Well, aknitter, you don't HAVE to eat it just because it's traditional!
10:35 am

periwinkle

Haz, have the wi6/36 but having trouble with the wi6/30, is there a double consonant in the middle
10:38 am
Atalante

lol I love the thing about Bush pardoning a turkey each year and giving them to Disneyland
10:39 am
periwinkle

I guess not, then it would be 7 letters
10:39 am
Haz1558

No - peri - clued below - wi plus the last letters (4) of the ge5/14 (man in the lamp)
10:39 am
Scrabbler

10:39 am
aknitter

Peri sounds a bit like a small sausage butbe random with the letters
10:40 am

I have typed that several times Haz and it is not accepted
10:41 am
periwinkle

Nm got it thanks Haz, I kept trying to stick a G in the middle
10:41 am
Haz1558

The first four letters are an anagram of wi4/8 (the drink). The word finishes with two vowels.
10:41 am
Atalante

I know! monster psycho murderer turkeys!

Actually, I was threatened by a turkey thug once. It was guarding the door of my car so menacingly that I had to jump in on the drivers side and climb across.
10:42 am
Haz1558

ursh - the he6/21 is structured the same way as the wi6/30 that we have been sorting out for Peri.
10:42 am
Scrabbler

TY Haz

10:43 am
Scrabbler

OH, dear, that is rather embarrassing. LOL

Scrabbler

or his he6
10:46 am
aknitter

doubt the turkey would be pardoned for that one
10:46 am
Vicuna

But they probably sedate it or something first. I imagine the farm-raised ones aren't nearly so aggressive as the wild ones.
10:46 am
Haz1558

da6 - da plus the third person singular, present tense of 'to leave' (if you have the da4 you should be able to work it out)

10:47 am
Vicuna

10:47 am
ursh

wh6/39 - adjective to describe people's brains after they have been babbling for a while
10:48 am
periwinkle

I have that as wh6/33
10:48 am
Vicuna

le6/24 - what Bush displays toward the turkey. More commonly seen in adj form ending in -ient and meaning mild or merciful
10:49 am
Haz1558

le6/24 can either be a Roman army contingent, or as Vicuna has clued
10:49 am
periwinkle
