Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/16/10

A community is like a ship; everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm.”   — Henrik Ibsen

(Some kind of mandatory community service – similar to military service, or the Peace Corps – would be beneficial to this end.  Modern society has  conditioned us to narrow our focus and “specialize”, to the point where looking out for # 1 has kind of become synonymous with not being able to see the forest for the trees.  The world could use a new influx of concerned generalists.) —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 04/16/10

Visual Description:  Floor manager of a busy floating casino looking to bring in some help.

HUBSY  =  BUSHY,  KARCC  =  CRACK,  MODEOD  =  DOOMED,  CARNID  =  RANCID —   Giving us:  SHAKDENCD

Clue/Question:  What the gambling boat needed for the card games.

Answer:  “DECKHANDS

(I don’t know when we last saw “rancid”.  It’s a great word.  For whatever reason it took a bit for me to get “doomed”, this morning.  Still not feeling up to par, I guess.  Nice scrambling of the answer letters!  I hate it when they make it too obvious.  Happy Friday, everyone!) YUR
