Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/22/14

Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.”   —   Harry S. Truman

(Give ‘Em Hell, Harry!  This is our first Harry Truman quote since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  I’d like to think it’s a truism.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/18/14

I think the greatest taboos in America are faith and failure.”   —   Michael Malone

(Our first Michael Malone quote.  I get the failure, but I disagree with the faith part.  Unless he wrote this quote about 40 years ago.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/21/14

A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they’re not so good, and sympathize with your problems when they’re not so bad.”   —   Arnold H. Glasgow

(Sounds like the definition of my wife!  Be well and so good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/17/14

When a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in, he has no choice but to become an outlaw.”   —   Nelson Mandela

(This statement could be argued a few different ways.  But, even for the most strident law and order types the loss of privacy, and other basic civil rights, puts all of us on the fringe of becoming outlaws.  Be well . . . be vigilant and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/17/14

Sorry, guys!  Got called out of town.  This weekend’s spoilers are going to be late, like this one.

Visual Description:  Our favorite cartoon artist, and his lovely family.

NURKT  =  TRUNK,  SERDS  =  DRESS,  KHANES  =  SHAKEN,  EEMCOB  =  BECOME   —   Giving us:  TRURSSSHKBOE

Clue/Question:  To paint the swimmers, the artist used – – -

Answer:  BRUSH STROKES

(As good if not even better than Thursday’s Jumble!  I don’t have access to my ralis95 clue word database, but I think these clue words are all old favorites.  The answer letter layout is fantastic!  I love a nice long answer.  They are almost always a little more challenging.  The cartoon is great, because it is partly chronicling our buddy Jeff’s family life.  I hope Cam won!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/16/14

The reason crime doesn’t pay is that when it does, it is called a more respectable name.”   —   Laurence J. Peter

(Capitalism?  The unfettered kind??  Hey!  If the shoe fits . . .  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/15/14

Crime is common.  Logic is rare.  Therefore it is upon the logic rather than upon the crime that you should dwell.”   —   Arthur Conan Doyle

(Okie dokes!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  No more pictures, folks.  Zemanta now has this – total BS – Terms of Service agreement, that is just more corporate fascism, that I just can’t be bothered with.   The hell with them anyway.  Less to consider when I post the spoilers!   —   YUR
