(Challenging) Jumble Spoiler – 03/17/10

Visual Description:  Connected citizen trying to unravel a bureaucratic tangle.

INGGO  =  GOING,  GHILT  =  LIGHT,  REDUSS  =  DURESS,  REALOP  =  PAROLE   —   Giving us:  GNLITUSSPRL

Clue/Question:  One way to solve a knotty problem.

Answer:  PULL STRINGS

(DURESS and PAROLE didn’t jump right off the page, but they didn’t take too much time, either.  The answer took a little work though.  I had to go on to the cryptoquote, then I came back to the jumble and figured it out.  The answer letters were nicely mixed up, so as it wouldn’t be so obvious.  Only having two vowels also added to the challenge.  Apologies for my tardiness.    The lateness in posting was due to my having to make an airport run, to pick up my daughter.  Have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everybody!) —   YUR
